I'm still split on putting a 225 or 235 on my future 9" wheels. Pretty much a fitment issue. I know the rear will be fine because I've got 9.5" with 235 right now. But my fronts are 8.5" with 225 and idk if 9" with 235 will rub.
Absolutely no rubbing now, though.

Nathan, glad those tires working out for you. Full disclosure Wheels Direct is owned by my Wife's distant cousin. I don't buy from him coz as a heavily discounted buyer i get pushed to the back and have to wait forever to get my tires done. Best place to research and buy tires in the GTA is http://simplytire.com/. They aren't the cheapest price but they are pretty fair, ie. if they don't have to mount the tire/wheels on your car they normally give a bit of discount, not many shops do that, Allen sold the shop at the beginning of this year, so not sure if they still do that but you can ask.

Blakcard, I've used several sets of chinese tires on my tire eating 540, with 320 ft-lbs of torque I loved doing burnouts and shredding those tires; had pretty good results with chinese tires and believe they are safe and would buy again, if the circumstance warrant doing so again but if I can afford something better I certainly would coz with tires you do get what you're paying for.

To be honest, for my front wheel drive cars I alway choose a tire that have great sidewall constructions and guarantee good front grip and response, as opposed to choosing the cheapest price.

As always, your money your choice.

2 sets for 2 diff civics
Winter rims for the benz
20" Niche Targas for my Jeep (RIP) - Still have the rims but dont know what to do with them as they are 5x110
18" i have on my golf

You mean Collin & Karen? Yep.. .that's who i dealt with in the past.

Well.. wife went and got the SUV tires. .FRD26. Drove to Montreal in them in the Tiggy loaded up. Through the hard sudden rain AND Montreal roads.
I was kinda surprised. $540 for mount balance and they handled speeds up to 140 well and were quiet enough the baby fell asleep. Stops weren't an issue.

Only reason I went with them was we needed tires in a hurry as the Firestone Indy 500 I ordered from a different place brought them in the wrong size. 18 vs 17in. So took a gamble.

We'll see if it pays off or not
