235/50ZR18 96W BF Goodrich

Any feedback on these for my V?

At 35,000 miles it's time for new shoes (again)

Factory tires, great tire, short life
Dunlop Direzza, these were crap
GSD3, great tire, longer life than the stock tire.

I found these Goodrich tires at a give away price. I've had the usual with the BF Goodrich in the past, needing to put in air constantly but I've been happy with them otherwise.

Good tires but I would never use that size on the V!

Go with 245 45 18, 255 40 18, or 265 40 18.

:yup: I'm very happy with the 255/40/18 BFG KDWIIs I put on the wife's V.

I only have 1k miles on them, but they feel so much better then the conti all-seasons that were on there before.

Yeah, the 50's would be kind of tall. I guess the $79 per tire caught my attention.

Price is right but that size would be a major handicap. I went 255/40 PS2s, next time I plan on 265/35.

i have 235/50's michelin ps2's in the front and 255/45's nitto nt555's in the back. i love the sizes. i just bought my nitto's 2 days ago and they have incredible traction in the rain so far.

Yeah, you definitely don't want to go *down* in size unless you have a specific reason to, like if you're going to be driving in deep snow or you want less friction on the front for drag racing. Tires are one of the biggest factors in handling (both size and quality of the tire) so if you go down in tire size AND tire quality, you're definitely going to reduce your car's handling significantly!
