Whats the difference between these two tires? Both are NT05s but im trying to figure out the difference

295/35ZR18 99W B
295/45ZR18 XL 112W B


I know the 45s will be taller but whats the XL for? does the 112W mean a higher tread life? Cant do much research here at work so I'm asking you guys.


My tires are getting bald and I need replacements :(

xl = extra load, thats what the 112 is vs the 99. same speed rating (w) youll have to find the treadwear ratings to see about stickyness and longevity. i'm betting they will ride very similar to each other but for hard launches or heavy loads id suggest the 45 xl. or for more normal driving just match all 4 so you can rotate them.

the NT05s come in 295 for the regulars as the biggest size. I drive too much and dont track enough for the "R". I am open to other tires though as spending a grand on tires right now is no fun :lol

Maybe you were saying 275/35/20, etc because the wheel diameter is obviously going to change the aspect ratio.

295-45-18 is what i just ordere for the rear of my bullitt the 295-35-18 was way to small and low profile for me and nothing really made in a 40 series so my tires should be here this week ill let you know how they work but should be the size to go with
