    Michelin tires...

    Just put some 295/35/18 tires! I don not like them!! They look good but I was expecting more.
    The goodyears I had looked way to wide than this tires!
    I wish I had bought the 335s!
    What other brand has a wide tire for the same size I have?
    Besides good year.

    What kind of Michelins are they? I loved my BFG KDW IIs that were 295/35/18.

    What don't you like about them? Those are supposedly some of the best street tires money can buy.

    They hook good on the street.
    But they look so skinny. I wanted something wider, I couldn't fond them. So I went with the same size I had.
    My point is that I was expecting same tire size on width.


    That tire goes for around $500 a piece

    If you would have looked for a 315/30/18 you would have found some options.

    yeah true, the thing is that imo that profile would look funny on this cars..
    would be a huge space between the tire and the fender,
    315/40/18 is the perfect size imo
