I personally love the 245's, especially the grip for an all season tire. Grips better than the 275's ever did, bit taller though, and with the b spring/no isos on the front....gotta watch big bumps. Outside of that, it corners better, and where i usually go hard from a stop, and always ended up sideways going from 1/2 it just has a light chirp going to 2nd. Width difference is barely noticable, and very very little bulge. heck, the 275's bulged more, probably due to the dry-rot. By the way, these are stock tire size for OEM cobra rims from 99, which is what this has on it. Overall, very pleased with the choice.
