Dunlop Direzza DZ101's.

they are super cheap, have good traction , stretch nice and dont have horrible or fast wear.

had my black e30 on 16x8 w/ 195/50's for over a year and they showed very little wear, and almost no camber wear even with my front and rear camber maxed out. i run them on my daily bronzit which is on 16x9 w/ 205/40's and the tires areholding up perfect.

I've had pretty good luck with the generals so far, but i dont like the brand image, and the tread looks ugly.
The dunlops have bad ratings..

and everything else is too expensive. lol

anyways, i highly suggest you guys buy your tires from discount tire and get the ~$20 warranty certificate
if your tires fail in any way, bubble, flat, etc, they replace them for free no questions asked....

i think i may just get the 452s again along with the certificates
No questions asked?
even if someone were to slice it?

quick bump.

how do Continental ExtremeContact DWS stretch?
looking to do
215/35 on a 19x8.5
225/35 on a 19x9.5

I see many say the falken 452's are good but others are saying are bad.
kinda stuck between those two..

Default What Tire Brand/Model for my stretch (17x9 235/50/17)

hi im new to the forums and was hoping you guys with experience could guide me in the right direction.

I have a lowered 07 hyundai sonata (1.5~2"). iv gone through a few sets of wheels, mostly19s and 20s and just got tired of spending insane amounts of money on tires. so i bought myself some xxr 522 17x9 with a 42 mm offset. originally i wanted to put 255/45 but realized i would run into issues with my steering and suspension components up front. and 245/45 would lower my car a 1/3 of an inch which i dont want. so im left with 235/50 (which is closest to spec but are not recommended passed 8.5" rim)

iv read that falkens are great for stretching because they have stiffer sidewalls. at the moment im considering falken 912s. #1 does anyone with experience or knowledge think this "stretch" will be unsafe and #2 have any better brand or model tire they can recommend for my size and application?

Thanks for your time.

512's stretch really nicely, and they're freaking easy on the wallet.

I find this list quite interesting and incredibly useful if it's accurate.

Question...I'm looking for some tires for an 8" front and 9.5" rear and I was considering going with 205/40 front and 215/40 rear. Should I go with a tire that's "known" to run wide?

^^ I'm thinkin that list is probably right...from what I've noticed at least.

My sister and I are both running 225/35. But her Falken 452s have less of a "stretch" (if you want to call it that, lol) than my Nitto NT555.

225/35 on what width wheel? I've having a hard time deciding if I should run 215/40/17 or 225/35/17 on a 9.5" wheel.

I'm running 512's. 205/45/16 on a 9.5, I love the stretch on them. The guy at discount told me that they were discontinued though? Any word?

Also has anyone heard anything about achilles tires? I was thinking about getting some 195/45/16 for a 8.5
