Exige Rain Tires
So I wore out my rears[surprise!] and was going to get another get of the same, but I have not been thrilled with the wet performance. I daily drive the car 8 months of the year, and the Dunlops have not been scary, but.....So I saw a thread on the Firestone[I know, really?] and read the test done by the tire rack, and they compared it to my very tire, and said mine were miserable in the rain.
So, the Firestones are better in the rain and the dry, so why not?
Well, they don't really come in the right sizes
It seems you have to get awfully big on the rears to avoid any potential ABS conflicts, or are those concerns overblown?
If I go with 205/45-16 on the front, they are slightly smaller in diameter than the stock 195/50-16 and to get the ratio back in sizes available, it looks like you have to go up to 245/40-17
Mind you, I am not looking to get wider tires, but merely trying to keep from screwing up
Would stock rears get funky with the slightly smaller diameter fronts?
