Anyone seen or heard of the SEARCH function, which brings up plenty of threads about the tire in question?

Anyone seen or heard of a useful subject line that would draw people to the thread by telling them what it's about?

I liked the stock tires but hated the wheels so I went to 18" w/ 245's on a 8.5" wide wheel. I can see why some think the sidewall is less stiff than the stock 17" bridgstones, because it is, but by going to a wider rim it eliminates some of this factor because the sidewall is already rolled out a little bit at the rim, also my wheels are a 2 piece drift wheel with a stainless outer. the end result is slightly better performance over stock with a lot better ride and UCTG wet trackion rateing you can't get with stock. I can tell you this you won't be disapointed. even if you stick with stock width and diameter 245/40/17 the less stiff sidewall results in less harmonic sound in the cabin and even though you will notice the flex during hard runs, the perfornce i.e. track times will be better with the invo's because of the dynamic tread design and various compounds used to manufacture the tires.
