Ordered 235/60/15 Yokohamas from TireRack

As the thread title reads, I ordered me 4 Yokohama 235/60/15 tires from the Tire Rack................I think the price was unbeatable ($48 per tire + shipping). I think the total price shipped came in under $240.

Unfortunately they are back ordered for a couple weeks..................I was considering the 245/60's from Bridgestone, but was concerned on 245 being too wide for the stock wheels, and I honestly didn't feel like spending the extra dough. I may be getting a company car in the next few months, which would mean goodbye to the Bird, so didn't want to overspend on what could end up being someone else's tires.

I'll take pics once I get 'em installed so u can see how they look..............give me a month or so I guess!

Gone but not forgotten:
'03 Black Mach 1 A4 (13.7 @ 104); '03 Torch Red Mach 1 M5 (13.4 @ 106), '01 White SVT Lightning (13.4 @ 103), '78 Silver Z28, 2 Mark VIII's, 3 T-Birds, '98 Black SVT Contour #4115

No doubt, I've had mine for several months and about 3000 miles. Nothing but great tires! They look sweet as you can get with stock wheels, too.

Now I'm in Florida....

Thanks

This has been gone over time and time again. DOZENS if not hundreds of people have run 245/60-15s on the stock wheels with not a single one reporting problems that I'm aware of. They're a bit higher but are basically exactly the right height for our cars. The 235 is a bit short.

God Bless and Fly Low!
