    Default Best Brands of Tire for stretch?

    Can any brand/model tires be stretched? If not, I think it would be helpful to have a thread with all the tires that stretch well, and ones to stay away from.

    Is it a bad idea to stretch used tires? Not trash ones, I mean used but nearly new tires..

    I love my Falken 452s but they have a bad rap. I have not had nothing but good things from them

    a lot of bmw guys run fuzion ZRi

    good stretch, run narrow, good treadlife, decent grip

    i don't think they're made anymore, but tirerack stocked them last time I checked

    I ran sumitomos, tho not stretching. I think they are horrable tyres.
    I swiched to stretched Toyo Proxes T1R, i swear they are WAY more grippy and less noisey. I luv them.

    I am running falken 512s 215/45/17 on a 10" wheel. It stretches better than any tire I have ever seen.
