the Monte looks good, I'd say that'* something that should be brought out on occasion. A car like that shouldn't be and doesn't need to be drove constantly, everday wear and tear yes the previous statement will occur.

Most people don't realize these rims and tires are not for everyday use. (rims snow) (tires daily) originally used for "Show" cars a lot of people drive them every day and that'* where U can get this concept of that'* how it'* sapposed to be, these tires (low pros) are for show, not everyday month on end driving.

If I had an occasional car I ever hardly drove I'd put something amazing on them, but not my everyday car (20'* would go on though) Consider also the money U spend on these too; You'll never get what you paid for them! My brother is an example: He paid 2,700 for 20inch rims and spinners and turned around an sold them for 1,900! Only had them for 2/half months! Consider all these things when making such a purchase. You might wanna catch someone selling them first before buying brand new If U do that though Always check the TIRES! dont' buy them if they've had them over a year (even if they didn't use them in the winter)

Just a little advise from a person who knows about buying and selling the street things.

I dont see why waste your money with 22'* when I thought 20'* were pushing it for a car.

My friend'* 18'* on his civic were ALWAYS popping, It was almost daily he would find out one of his tires was flat again. He actually bent 1 rim within 2 weeks of having them

take those potholes slow.

18"-20" is fine. definately would not do 22'*! I have 245/40/18'* and my ride is perfect. Surprised a lot of people on the ride quality. Didnt lose anything on my speedometer either. 22'* will ride like total ****! Plan on replacing all of your frontend components soon. But if your not planning on driving your Bonne often then GO FOR IT!!!!

actually you did lose something with that tire size.

speedometer reading with non-stock tire is 3.4% too fast.
When your speedo reads 60mph, you are actually traveling 57.9 mph.
245/45/18 is a better bet for 18s
