Default Darkside

Yay, got me a tire, FINALLY! Went with a Riken Raptor 225/50R16 V-Rated Ultra-High Performance All-Season tire from Sears. Found one on clearance. Original price $125, got this one for $30!!!!!!!! (only because they were "trying to get rid of the one extra one" they had left) Pics coming when I get it put on.

Default Just my 2 Cents!!

I run a Nitto NT 450 225/50/r16 CT, give it about 500miles at 40psi to break in and then i dropped to 31PSI, that is the sweet spot. Hope you find yours, LOL. Good luck Darksiding!! This picture has 7,000 miles on my CT, looks brand new!!

Default Nope!!

The tire itself has plenty clearance all around, I did notch the plastic inner fender shroud on the belt side just in case it were to rub riding 2up, no issues so far JJ.

That's good to know street325.
I will be mounting a 205/60-16 and should have a lot of room.
