Time for new tires...

Right now i have a set of Kumho Ecsta 711 tires 245/45-17 all around on
17x8 Mach 1 rims...What other sizes would you guys recommend. I'm thinking either Kumho or Bridgestone as of right now.

Re: Time for new tires...

youll either want a 275/40/17, 255/45/17, or 245/45/17 on those rims. 275 is as big as you should go on an 8" wheel. A guy on here really likes the yokohama es100 or something like that, Im sure he'll chime in since he whores that tire more than a 2 dollar hooker... but those are the sizes you should look at.

Re: Time for new tires...
