outahere Posted April 20, 2005 Share Posted April 20, 2005 Have a question for those who have changed to 225/45x17 tires from the stock 215/45x17 size. Have you noticed a "seat of the pants" difference in acceleration? This tire size difference effectively changes the final drive ratio from 4.111:1 (GT manual trans), to around 4.019:1. I am considering changing to this tire size, but don't want to do it if it makes the LGT feel sluggish. I don't care about 0-60 times, but do care about the acceleration "feel". Also curious if you have noticed an improvement in highway mileage. On a side note, at the Pirelli web site the approved wheel width for a 225/45x17 PZero Nero M&S tire is stated to be 7.0" to 9.0". Hard to imagine that the tire would work well on a 9" wide wheel, isn't it? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
