    Sorry bob! I meant 205/40/17!!! my bad. On tire-rack now.

    Yokohama S drive? Or Kumho Ecsta ASX/AST? All are 215/40 with the required load rating but at least they are still legal.

    Looking for something around the $600 mark for 4.
    the 595's i've found are apparently 87v, they must make different types or something :/

    KU27 or KU36? Would probably like the better of the two - any feedback? Also any feedback on the Goodyear. I have seen both of those but havent heard much on either.

    215/45/17 are 87... But slightly bigger than what I am after (215/40/17).

    I'm using Goodyear F1's at the moment and it's VERY difficult affair to break traction.

    I've had them for about 15,000K's the previous owner must have done around 5-10,000 I think because my fronts are worn out, but my rears are on about 40-50%.

    Considering the inner wear that's now made them illegal to drive on the road, the 68-32 F/R weighting the the Prelude and my driving style I would assume with a rotation you would see 40,000-45,000 on them (I didn't rotate).

    I have a question for people.. If i wanted to fit a 8 - 8.5" Rim on the rear and hopefully a 7.5 - 8" inch on the front.. would a 215/40/17 tyre be suitable and also the rolling of guards would clear this setup? Want to run a offset of say +25 or +35.. have seen the wheels i like with a +35 17" rim on a 5th gen in the U.S.. thoughts?

    Obviously the size is huge, I think those were a god damn 20, but you get the idea.

    Looking to get 2 front tyres for the lude and wondering has anyone got any new input on whats proven good out there?
    Was looking at Goodyear f1's or the Bridgestone re0's and looking to spend $200 on each,the Advans they are going on to are quite a big 17in rim to cover.
    The rears have 225/45r17 90W and whilst good tyres they look very bulky overall on the wheel,they'll get done after the festive season.

    hey guys, just wondering if I would get away with a 235/40r18 on the front of my 4th gen or would I get rub when I'm full lock?

    Did you read page 1 at all?

    It all depends on if/how much you are lowered and the offset of the wheels. A 235/40R18 is a crazy big tyre on any width wheel though, it's nearly 40mm larger in diameter than the stock tyres so it'll lift the car by 1/2 that and throw your speedo out about 6%. If for instance you are looking at an 18x8 +32 (a fairly common size) then you are also losing nearly 40mm of guard clearance compared to stock. I really doubt it would work.

    18's look like junk on 4th gens too. If you are dead set on them then you would be much better off with a 225/35R18, with an appropriate width/offset wheel this should clear.
