Tire size question

2526 Views 9 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  LymanSS
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.

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.
