Re: what size summer tires are you running? (mike_c70)

A little stiffer than the stock 18's. I live in Minnesota and the roads where I live are great. However if I venture to downtown Minneapolis I am constantly dodging holes. If I lived near that city or visited regularly, I would be replacing rims alot.

Tracking this summer on Kumho because of cost/wear, also going to use Vredestein Ultracs. In each case 235/40/18....No spacers ever and O.Z. Superleggra III (track) or Axis Hiros as the wheels (mountains)

I also have PS2 that I will use for Harriman/Bear Mountain missions

I am a tire freak http://********************/smile/emthup.gif

Im thinking about putting 245/40/18 on new pegs probably doing the pirellies asymetric. you guys dont think the 245 is too big do you?

It'll probably rub unless you put spacers on the car. I rub at full lock with the stock 17s

o ok so i might just do the 235 so i guess i save some wieght and its probably not worth the gripp i get from the extra bit

Unless you are tracking, you will never touch that extra grip. If you're doing it for looks, that's another thing. But get spacers.

If you're looking for a bargain on Pirellis, check this link out.

I am not a big fan of them but at $400 plus shipping, it's a deal. I was planning to buy them but it looks like I may be able to get one more season out of my PZeros and I hate to let them sit for a year.
