New rubber, the highlight of my day.
« on: November 14, 2017, 04:42:04 PM »
295 30 18

I've got 285 40's on there and I haven't liked the look of them due to the taller sidewall.

They did until this  year, they have gotten hard all the sudden.  The car was down for a year and when I got it back on the road they slip all over even on warm days.  Kinda scary when you merge onto the highway in 3rd and the go up in smoke.  The main reason I didn't go back to them those is the tall sidewall in the 18" I just never liked the look of them.

Yep.. All those 200 ish treadwear tires lose grip fast after a year or so.
