2009-2014 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion Discussion, Question about tire size in Cadillac CTS-V Series Forum - 2009-2014; I've searched but can't find the answer. Sorry if it's been addressed before. Can I put the same size tire ...
Ok I was pretty tired when I posed this question. So let me give more detail in hopes I can get a serious answer. I wanted to put Michelin run flats on all four corners but I can only find the 35's in run flats. Since there is only 1/2" difference in wheel width between the front and back. I wanted to know if you could put 35's on the front?
you probably could, but the sidewall flex / look / and handling of the tires might not be ideal.
Since these michelin tires look narrow relative to the rim already, getting a slightly wider tire might not be a bad idea - but there's still a bit of a gamble there as you can't expect the tire to handle and grip in the same fashion (even if it is only a 1/2" difference).
You can check recommended wheel widths for a given tire size on the Michelin website, IIRC they will fit. But any wheel shop will also tell you when you place your order whether or not it appears compatible.
