Looking for new rear tires to fit my Blitz 18's, but I'm having a hard time to find the right size. I currently have Goodyear Pilot Sport in the 285/35/18 format. I was looking at the Nitto Invo, Falken, Pirelli, and most of them don't have that size.

Suggestions will be appreciated...


Thx!

BFGoodrich g-Force T/A KDW 2s or the plain KDs if you don't drive the car in the rain.

Nitto's have them for that size... what are you talking about?
Like I said, the Nitto Invo. Even contacted them, they can't special order tires. They will soon have 275's and 295's, but no 285 Invos... I might go with another Nitto then. Could you recommend one in particular? I want a mix of quietness/softness, durability and performance.

The BFG's have always been the quietest for me. I used to have the Nitto 555's, and those were pretty noisy. The Nitto's are sturdyier than teh BFG's and last a little longer though.

I just picked up a pair of 285/35/18 Nitto 555's from Discount Tire Direct for $428 shipped. They are all I ever run. They have great life when things are aligned right.

285/35/18 was the stock size for the 1998-2004 corvette. They should be relatively easy to find. Look at the Goodyear Eagle F1. They are a good tire and they are the stock tire on the corvette so they are normally easy to find.

Ah, sorry I didn't know you could go higher on tire width... so 295 would fit? Hrm.. then I might just do that then. And yeah, Tire rack is a good site :D

Thanks!

I have Eagle F1s. Never again...

They handle horribly and are quite noisey in my opinion.

You said you had to roll the fenders. Thats got me a little worried because im ordering the CCW T 10's with a 18/10 front and a 18/11 rear with a toyo t1r's 265/35 front 295/35 rear. Do you think I will have to roll the fenders.

you'll probably have to roll front and rear. also, with a 10 and 11" i would go maybe with a 275/305.

That completely depends on the offset of the wheels...
