The Dunlops are about ready for replacement and I'm thinking of giving a 245/45 17 (as opposed to the 235/45s I have now) size tyre a go - they will sit on BA 17x8 rims and sit under King lows. I'm hoping they might improve ride comfort a little and not lose too much cornering stability.
Has anyone had any experience with this size tyre and what did/do you think of it... how were they different to the 235 tryes drivability-wise?
I had 225/50 16 prior to the 235/45 17 and the ride was a lot more comfortable. The 17s definately made the car much sharper in the performance department but the harder ride took a little getting used to. If I could find something in between the two I'd be happier... hence the 245/45 idea.
Do you know someone who might swap with you for a couple of weeks so you could try them out and see what you though before spending the $$$? Where are you located?
