    i ask this all the time and i keep forgetting the tire sizes. i need to purchase some tires for my roushes and don't know what sizes to get. not going the brand new route instead just keeping my eyes open for used tires. right now i was thinking about purchasing 265/35/18 Yokohama ES 100. i was thinking of putting these on the front and was curious to know if they are a good fit?

    any suggestions welcome

    265/35 would look good, a nice full wheelwell up front always looks good. what do you have planned for the back? 315/30/18 perhaps? O0

    i dunno for the back yet. depends on how the roush wheel fits on the back first. the thing is that the back wheels have a 41 mm offset and with a 315 tire i'm worried about rubbing issues after its put on. if it works out then i will slap on a pair of 315 but most likely i will be putting on a 295 rear tire.

    sweet i think i will be getting the 265's. i suggest waiting until the weather warms up and roast those 275's into white smoke. too bad tires are so freaking expensive ARGH!

    Those are excellent all around tires.. They were on my 2000 GT and with Far less suspension mods it stuck far better than my cobra...
