Re: tyers again

175/50/14 are the best bet... lowest profile.

either them or 185/50/14

Re: tyers again

is it only pirelli and goodyear that make the 175/50/14?

not sure if this is right but do 195/45/14's fit?

i think you can get 195/45 14 but i would imagine the width of the wheel would need to be bigger so they fit on - 195 could also mean possible scrubbing/catching issues

I'll second the motion, 5.5" is too narrow really.

They're fantasic in the dry. But in damp or just rained conditions there a bit iffy, makes roundabouts fun. Overall very good IMO, I would buy em again.

all about the toyo proxies for tread pattern for me... awesome, but year the pirellis are close behind, actually had more cases of oversteer in the cinq than understeer, especially on the snow lol
