After my last thread im confident that the issues im having with how its driving is the pos rsa's. Getting tires within the next few weeks. Really I just want the size that will drive the best. Looks like its between 255-55-20, 265-50-20 and 275-45-20. Not going to stager or anything. Just know different sidewall heights can drive different, handle, be more comfortable... Advice is greatly appreciated!

Can anyone post pics of their setup? Curious how much better looking the smaller sidewall is.

How are those tires? 105 seems too good. What's the catch?


Honestly only kind of fun driving I do is in a straight line. So for performance would a smaller sidewall even benefit me? Seems like just getting 255-55-20's for comfort is best. And friend gets 35% of Bridgestones.

255/55 is too tall.

No complaints with my 275/45s, just a little more grip, not quite a half inch shorter. My Yokohamas have been great, the RSAs were trash.

I love my 275/45 kumhos. Decent in the rain and good in dry conditions.

I just put on a set of Cooper zeon a/s tires on...they are 265/50/20's...the performance seems the same acceleration wise as well as being a more comfortable tire. They are also highly rated for all season handling/performance...they are "Z" rated

That's a lot of money for crappy tires. I got BFGs for less then that.
