Default Ok, i need tires..

So my tires are looking pretty tore up after 16K... and to be honest, im sick of these 215s on an 8 inch wheel.

I really really want to squeeze 245s under this thing.. so.. what is your recommendations for tires to look at? Ill be doing the coilovers at the same time btw.

i have 235/40's definatly more traction BUT you can say goodbye to the light nice feeling of the steering.. plus taking hard fast turns it seems it doesn't feel as stable. If i could go back i prob would have gone 225/45-or40..

I have 235/40 on a 7.5. Feels like maybe i should have went with a slightly more narrow tire (225). According to some tire specs I just looked up, 235/40 or 245/40 should be OK iwth 8" wide wheels.

With that said, I'll probably be getting different wheels soon (8"), I will try to squeeze 245s in.

Zach, thats the problem. I dont know which ones would fit. Ive heard of some guys who have made it work, but its not discussed in length. ill be forced to go local to see if this can be done. i dunno, maybe i would be better off with 225 but than again, that wouldnt be going extreme either and i want extreme tires

The Dunlop Z1 Star Spec seem to be all the rage right now. On a 8" wide wheel I think you can run these at 225 and have it not be too tight. If I decide to go with these tires, that's the size I will run on my 16x8.

Here's a link that compares the Dunlops at 235 to Hankooks at 225

SCCAForums.com - Dunlop Direzza Sport Z1

Looks like a much bigger difference than 10mm.

Thanks blag. I did go with a 8 inch wheel to run a bigger tire than a 225 though. That gives me a brand to start with at least. Ill keep you updated on my findings.

I went with SO3's 225/45 on my 18x8 48 off rim

Soon as I wear those down I will be deciding between 245/40's with Bridgestone Potenza REO50A Pole Position, Yokohama (if I can find Neova's in that size), Goodyear or the new "dark horse"...Sumitomo HTR Z lll, which TireRack raves about.

Sumitomo HTR Z III - Max Performance Summer tires 245/40/18

I got them only $500 shipped from TireRack
300 treadwear rating
Amazing grip so far in dry weather - I haven't "tested" on anything wet yet...

They are so cheap that even if they aren't the perfect tire for you, you wouldn't feel so bad about ditching them.

What's your price range? Knowing the little about you I do know.... that's probably a dumb question though. If you want something grippier - I would say the BFG KD.... (not the KDW) but those are quite a bit pricier - something in the $250/wheel range IIRC

Not sure if you are willing to try this but i am thinking of going 245/45/17's vs 18s. This should should give me more width (lateral grip )as well as a taller sidewall which should help straightline traction. Downside might be reduction in steering response.

I really didnt want to go 17's but i also dont like the fact i need to go 40's on an 18. Either way, it sucks but i got to make due with what i got now. I hate small wheels for daily driving.

Well at leas you have more options on 17" and 18" wheels. Options for a 16" in a wider tire are very limited, not much larger than 225/50(55)-16, only a few 245/50-16 and I have not been able to find anything at 235/xx-16

What's the everyone's opinion of General UHP's? I don't autoX, mostly a daily driver car for me with the occasional spirited canyon run.

For my future wheels size, they are the lightest "performance" wheels I've found. 21lbs a tire + 15.5lbs a wheel should be a nice drop from the stock setup.

I still have the stock 215/45/18s on my 18x8 +48 rims. As soon as those are worn down, I also plan on 245/40/18s since that size gives the same tire height as the stockers at 25.7"

Only suspension mod I plan on doing is the Cobb rear sway. Only lowering I'll do is if Stretch comes through with new springs/koni yellow setup through CPE.

That Koni setup would really be badass if that goes through!

Well, option 1, 2 and 3 is for 245/40/18... only option 4, less than 245 will go into affect if i cant get this to work, but im going to try my hardest.

i use the generals on my infiniti - i have to say great tire fore the money - excellent ride , very good grip but sidewalls are soft so turnin is a bit squishy

Well i went with Nitto NT-555s. Got em cheap too.
2-Day Parts - Search Results Here are some good prices.
Amazing tire. Slayed the 2nd gear wheel spin monster (mostly its still a 225), and the cornering improvement is phenomenal. I went with 225/40/18 because im still running stockers, but the have all the sizes you could want. I think I have found my tire of choice. They look sick as balls on the car too.

I haven't ran them but I have heard the hankook Ventus R-S2 is about as good as the falken azenis 615 so they may be worth a try.

Hey demi, how does it feel cornering with those 225s on your 7 inch rims? Because I am debating weather or not to run 235s on 7.5 inch rims wich would be about the same amount over.
