I used to go with Z rated tires but the treadlife on my Yokohamas is low.I will more than likely be going with H rated tires this time.

215/45/17 is the size you need.

I have Kuhmo ECSTA 712's on my car and they lasted over 30 months and about 50,000 miles. This has been with a drop anywhere from 1.5"-2.5" throughout that time.

I just replaced them with the same tires. Never a blow out, they wore pretty evenly considering the drop. I made sure to get an alignment once every 14 months or so and rotated the tires every other oil change. I even had them balanced a couple of times throughout their life.

Never did I have a problem, the tread design is awesome and they handle very well in the rain. Not a snow tire though. Best part, you can get them for as low as $88

I have 215/45/17 Falken's.

Only had them for a summer before I do the switch for winter but they are super sticky, seem to have full tread doing the penny measurement I do and I love em. Also, Im slammed with GC coil's

Only $100 now. I got them when they were $120:angry4: :D

I told you before, but had to be "cool" and get z-rated.:p
