I'm looking at different replacement tire sizes and I think I've decided on a set of Michelin Pilot XGT Z4 235/45-17. Does anybody have tires with similar measurements??? I'd really like to see what the trep would look like with these dimensions for tires.

No, I don't have the rims yet, but I plan on getting Konig Villain 17x8's when I get the tires. They aren't exactly expensive rims ($175 each), but I like the look of them more than any other rim (even the more expensive ones). I don't think I'll be doing this until Christmas, but I'm certainly planning ahead.

How much do those tires cost, and how long do they last?

I am Referring to the BFG X-forces, of course

Also, does anybody think 255 is too wide?
Im gonna replace my rims and tires next, In about 3 months mabey, or as soon as I can get the $1300 or so saved up. thats about how much i wanna spend anyway, mabey up to $1500 at most

I was thinking 17x8 rims and 255/45 17 tires, but Im not sure what kind yet. Anybody tried Nitto tires? they seem like good bang for your buck

Really like to bag a set of 17's from an lhs or 300m, wrap them with 245/45/17's. BFG's are definately the way to go on these!

255 is THE WIDEST you can put on these cars. I have 255/50/16 Michelin Pilot XGT Z4 tires on my Intrepid. They only have a couple millimeteres of clearance, but they don't rub. Any wider would be a problem. I highly reccomend getting as much rubber as you can under these cars. They are amazing when you give them some serious tires...especially if you have the sport suspension. Using a Gtech, I pulled a continuous .94 G's after my tire upgrade. Tested and verified many times. I highly reccomend the XGT Z4s. I also have Pilot Sports on my Lincoln Mark VIII. Those tires are incredible in the rain, but have a little more sqirm. It feels like the sidewalls are softer, which isn't what I expected. But I think they are designed for extremely low profile situations where you need a lot of sidewall flex to compensate for the shortness of the sidewall.
