Even though I just replaced my tires with 205/50 front and 235/45 rear (ExtremeContact DW), decided to switch them to 205/45 and back to OEM spec 225/45. At the ride height/damping I am set at, I don't want to worry about rubbing (and a rubbing it was, all around!), even if it's "a little bit" for the streets. Decided to go with Bridgestone Potenza RE11's. If I stayed with OEM sizing for the front/rear, the only tire I would have considered would have been the DWS, but I really don't need the A/S designation. Had them on a set of wheels for my Elise and was fairly satisfied with them, but wanted just a little more...

PS - I already have another set of wheels with R888's on it for track duty (OEM size tires).

'07 Exige S - Graphite Gray
'14 Scion iQ (to park damn near anywhere)
'17 Lexus NX200
'17 BMW M3 6MT
