I'm planning on replacing my RE92s with 225/45ZR17 Proxes 4. Would they fit OK on my stock 7" wheels or should I stick to the stock 215 size? Which would give me better grip + steering response? thx. for any help =)

If it's a "narrow" 225, you'll be alright. If it's a "wide" 225, you'll get sidewall flex/squirm, and your handling will actually deteriorate. That a 225 by one manufacturer isn't a 225 by another is, for me, the pinnacle of vexatiousness.

that's what I thought myself... sidewall squirm on narrow wheel...heh =(

 

Is anyone running this combo and willing to comment, is the larger 225mm width worth the 'upgrade' using Proxes 4 tires?

 

thx. again for any help
