yeah i think i decided to go with 225/40/18 which from my understanding is a wider tire, with a thinner wall? either way sounds straight to me. and im deciding between 2 brands, nitto and toyo, leaning towards nitto because it seems to be the only tire anyone around this damn place carries!

ok so i just got off the phone with a couple dealers toyo site said carried them, and they all told me they stopped carrying them because they were wearing too fast and people have been having lots of problems with them.

Alternative?
