    Re: Tires- thoughts?

    For a summer only tire, I think you'll have a hard time beating these for the price.

    The nice thing about an asymmetric tire, and running the same size at all 4 corners, is that you can do the traditional X-swap tire rotation instead of just swapping front to rear on each side of the vehicle.

    If you run directional tires, and a different size front to back, then you can't rotate them at all.

    Just a suggestion.

    I've had these on my car in 255-40-18 for almost 2 years now and they've been great.

    Another bonus to running same size asymmetrics is that, if you have a full size spare with matching tire, then you dont have to worry about which side of the car you're putting it on when a tire blows out. No extra wheel jockeying necessary. Just replace and go.

    Apparently I didn't give good advice, but good luck.
