    i have stock rx-8 wheels and tires on it (mazda3) now (225/45r18 91w) - and that's just not working
    the car sits higher, and is much slower and most important - it's using more gas


    ok, so to keep as close to oem as i can, the size i need on that wheel is 225/40/18 , right? right.

    what *BRAND* and *MAKE* of tire is the right way to go - considering it's dry (or 2" of water on the road during the rainy season) here in S FL?

    also considering i have a set of tein h-tech that will be installed (and still need to get the camber kit)


    sooner i get new tires, the better off i'll be

    :hsd:
