Today I put 245/40R17 ContiSports in the rear. Excellent fit, no rubbing at all! All was great, until I figured one tire had a bubble and was deflating
Back at the tire store - no more of this size available. So I decided to bite the bullet and went with Pirelli PZero Asymmetric, 255/40R17.
Now I can hear and feel every little bump on the road. Pros - much improved traction, handling and acceleration under certain conditions. Cons - heavier tires, road noise is pronounced (esp. at higher speeds), fenders RUB! Wish me luck tomorrow when I take out my trusty baseball bat and use it for once for a noble cause
To roll up my fenders, that is. Then I'll post if there's any fender rubbing when going over speed bumps and such.
