What are you using the car for? 1/4 mile, corners, or DD? They each have different requirements that different tires will be better for.Thanks. I am thinking about getting BF Godrich G Force Tires. Does anyone have any experience with those. I have Yokohamas now but am not really impressed with those. Is there a website you can recommend that sells tires for a decent price
85 isn't that fast for a modern tire. I think the lowest speed rating is for 120.I use it for everyday driving but I drive it pretty fast, 85+ miles per hour on a regular basis. I have a speeding problem, lol
From personal experience I have to disagree with you about the wet grip.. As long as you get an all purpose tire you won't have issues no matter how wide you go.. Do not run drag radials unless you are gonna drag..85 isn't that fast for a modern tire. I think the lowest speed rating is for 120.
For a DD, I highly recommend sticking with an allseason tire. It's not going to have the dry grip of a summer tire, but you also won't have to worry about wet traction. If you're on a budget, I recommend Kumho ECSTA ASXs. For 245/45s, they're less than $100/tire, and they're speed rated.
I also don't suggest going to a wider-than-stock tire unless you're competing in some shape or form. While increasing dry grip, wider tires *decrease* wet grip and increase rolling resistance (which translates to lower fuel economy).
