    315's cross country???

    Well, I am about to buy a new set of rims/tires and I am just wondering how 315's will handle trips from california to texas then back and also in about another 8 months another trip back to texas. I am looking into AFS wheels on ebay. I really like the Black chrome zr1's. Will I need to get brand new tires when I am done with all my trips or will these tires last just as long as 275's. thanks for any info. Im juggleing between 275's or 315's in the back.

    Sure, there is a bit more rotational mass to a 315 series tire and a bit more drag, but I certainly haven't seen a noticeable difference in my gas mileage and I've been running a 315 series Nitto 555R on 17x11 rims for 3 years.

    White01WS6, the only trick is to find the correct tire pressure to keep the centers from wearing out faster than the edges. I've found 25 psi works best for my Nittos but it will differ depending on what tire you use.
