Is no one going out on a limb and getting Yokohama Advan Sports??

I'm surprised at how little tire talk there seems to be. The Michelin PS2s seem like the best tire but the offering isn't optimal in 20" for us...

More thoughts?

I may be willing to experiment a little bit. Afterall, it's only one set of tires. What did you have in mind with the Advans?

Well, depends on what you think is optimal. I'm running 20" Micheling PS2's with spacers 255/35 front and 285/30 rear. That is pretty much the 'optimal' setup IMO.

I called Tirerack today and ended up going with the 285/255 combo. The 285s were not on their website but they do have them in stock. When I thought they weren't available and the shorter 295/25 was our only option, I wasn't so hot on the Michelins.

With the Advans, I was thinking 305/25/20 and 275/30/20...both of which were on backorder.

So, I've put my order in. The backorder issue, height issue, and the fact that these wheels are gonna be here soon caused me to jump on the Michelins.

That blows... I was going to get that combo. Did they tell you how long the back order was for?

What about the Pzero Neros? I found them in stock in my area in 275/30/20 front & 305/25/20 rear

Are 275's up front going to rub?

Hey Zapper,

The Yoko backorder was unspecified but the sales rep said that he thought late September.

As for the Pzeros, we didn't discuss them. He mentioned that they existed but didn't recommend them or anything.

I'm not sure about rubbing. It sounds like others have had luck with 305/275 so I'm guessing its OK...or can be made OK at least.

By the way, our wheels are made so that we won't need or want spacers, right? I can't remember exactly.

I assume the spacers are 12mm in front and 10mm in back? Did you consider 19x10s all the way around and then using wider tires. I'm waffeling betwen this and your set up.
