    So 255/40/18 fill the wheel wells a bit better i take it? I'm going to stick to the same at all 4. But would like a little bigger tire to fill the wells.

    255/40 will not fill the wells, but I would not go wider then that in the front.

    Elitist? No. I just choose to put the best performance tire on a performance car. Not the one with the best looking tread design. Which, in this instance, is purely subjective. I always thought the yard full of leaves design looked awful...

    Really? Are you an oversensitive tough guy or an oversensitive wuss?

    Re: Stock Tire Sizes

    you have a V2 now, so when you have something negative to say, it's going to be perceived a certain way (on top of the usual indignation)... whether you mean it that way or not.

    you have a V2 that you enjoy, I have a V1 that I enjoy... so how likely are you to be happy for a V1 owner who enjoys their V1 as much as you enjoy your V2

    and in this case, you've come to the V1 section and laughed at someone's source of enjoyment. you're the angry kid on the playground right now.

    ALTHOUGH... the tread design pride is a very FL thing to say/do. (have you driven through Miami lately?)

    Tires are not V specific. So whether this is V, Eldorado, SRX, etc...specific, my V2 ownership means nothing. If you think my comments are the big bully mean kid, then you truly are a n00b. I've been critiquing tire choice based on tread looks for years.

    FYI, I owned my '04 for well over 5 years. The V2 for 3. I still miss my V1 and don't love the '09 like that omder model.

    So stop talking ignorant and assuming everything...

    Re: Stock Tire Sizes

    I know you enjoyed your V1, and ridicule is impolite--people usually keep it to themselves--so at best you're just being mean, and at worst you resent the idea of someone enjoying their tread design...

    Re: Stock Tire Sizes

    No offense but KDW2's have no business on these cars. They may "look" cool to some, but that's definitely sombody's opinion. I personally think they look like crap. Regardless they are a junk tire, not much grip, extremely noisy and good luck if your car ever see's a puddle of water. That tire works fine on an SRT4 neon because you won't be able to hear the tire roar over the blow-off valve that's boosting during parking lot maneuvers...lol

    At the end of the day. Your car is only as capable as the tires you put on it. If you are going to go the route where you get a dedicated summer only tire there are so many better options than this tire it wouldn't even make my list of tires to even consider.
