tread looks amazing, what is the stock tire size? the larger the tire I go with I enjoy using 255'* for a wider feel.

you stole my tires!


I've got 20,000 miles on mine...they dont look that much different than new.

good tires in the rain and dry, snow..not nearly as good as a blizzak.

I didn't realize that we could fit a tire that wide on our cars, sweet...........

Did you notice and increase/decrease in MPG with the size change? What about the speedo?
