I've heard good things about these. The only negative Ive heard is that they tend to be loud...they were on my list when I was looking at tires.

Weird, never had any additional road noise with mine. They sound the same as my Falken AS tires on my winter wheels.

Now that I think about it, it might have been the KDW's.

Most gripper tires are going to be noisier. My invos and NT-05s both have a good bit of road noise.

Had the 255's on for a good 3 miles and came back and had them taken off.

I don't know what it was but immediately after I got in the car and drove it the tires would spin 5 times as much at half the throttle input. Did I make a mistake with the size?

Fronts 235/50/18 backs 255/45/18. Could the height of the tire be causing this? Especially when the rears are summer tires and should be stickier. I just don't know where to go from here.

Without commenting on the brand of the tire, should there be anything with the size set up I have going on?

Once I hVe that established I will be open to different brands b

Most of the grip comes from the tire compound, not the size. There are people pushing massive amounts of horsepower and hooking on a 275 Mickey tire. Same people can throw a 335 NT555R and spin in the first 4 gears.

Damn. So there's no way in hell that it is the height difference that's causing the issue? I'm getting interested in those mickeys haha

335 vs. 275 is not height, it's width. If you want a 335 you'll need at least an 11" wheel.

It's not the height or the width that is causing the issue. It's the type of tire.


Bullitts are better than Bullets

The 275 Mickey tires I mentioned are drag racing tires. You won't get many miles out of them.

Depends on what you consider many miles lol.

I think these street comps are rated for 20-30k. Of course that's highly dependent on how you drive, if you can and do rotate them, proper camber etc.

Yes I understand. I was referring to the 45 vs 50 difference. But if it comes down to the type of tire then I now know where the problem lies.
