Does anyone know if mixing a 225/45 ZR 17 and a 225/45 R17 (91W) on the front axle makes difference? They are both continental and have exactly the same tread pattern. I purchased a new tire from the dealer and had a "new" one from the guy I bought it from. After taking a closer look the one from the dealership turns out to be the ZR.

Any help would be greatly appeciated

The Z means that it's a sport tire. Anything with a Z is more stable at higher speeds and have a stronger side wall.

Hi kids, do you like 5 inch tips? Wanna see me stick chrome fender flares over each one of my Konigs? Wanna follow me and do exactly as i did? Try NAWS and get your motor f#cked up worse then my life is?
My brain's dead weight, I'm trying to get my head straight, but i can't figure out which sticker to put over my license plate. And the mechanic says "Rice Burner you's a crack head "Nu-uh" "Then why's your car dead man its wasted" Well since age 9 I've wanted an SI so i could put chrome 18's on it and make it run 16.9's. Got pissed off and ripped all my honda emblems off, And replaced them with "R" badges so people know im not soft. I smoke a big bowl of chron, and lay in my lawn, for longer then it took me to put my altezzas on. "Come here bastard" "Dude, wait a minute thats a viper dawg!" I don't give a f#ck, i'll just fly by and put my hazards on!
