    New tires

    So, I have my 245/50 Fuzions Zri, put damn near 30K on them (yeah, yeah). Have a slow leak from a sidewall puncture, so time for new skins. Theu were great when new, hated them 5K in to them.

    Looking at 255/50ZR16 Sumitomo HTR Z. Winter is not a consideration, I live in the desert. These tires are ultra cheap at $76 from tirerack.com.

    Does anyone have any input on these tires? At that price, it's approaching expendable. Should I pay an extra $30 or so per tire for the BFG? I despise BadYear, love Firestone (truck tires), blah blah.

    Will 255's hit anywhere? Seems like a small increase in size. I drive like a bat out of hell, so speedo differences are inconsequential.

    Input greatly appreciated.

    I have ZRis and like them a lot.....I decided not to get the Sumitomos because a few people I know did not like them. You can go to the Tire Rack and read reviews on almost any tire you want.

    After I put 5K or so on them, I felt like they weren't sticky enough. I noticed a distinct loss of cornering ability over when they were new. On a positive note, they wore well.
