    Default 240z tire sizes?

    I've got some 60 series summito 205's for autocrossing.

    However, I'd like something a bit more comfortable for my daily driving. I am thinking some 75 profile Kumhos. The higher profile to get me a bit more off the ground and give me some flex to reduce ride harshness. I'm entirely stock with KYBs and with some ZX wheels. What would be the widest I can go without rubbing? I see 195/70 listed. I am thinking maybe a 75 might have to be a bit smaller.

    What's yall's experiences?

    Other suggestions.

    Go ahead and flame me and tell me to buy a Buick if you want.

    I have Kumho 195 X 70. They feel sporty and they are very comfortable too. I highly recommend them as they are affordable too. Plus, the 70 series tires have that vintage look that looks so good on Z's. I used to have 185 X 65 on my car and I did not like the look of the short sidewall. Now I have 195 X 70 and my car looks far out 70's style.

    Take care,

    Ben

    Which Kumho do you have. There seem to be a couple of styles. I was quite pleasantly surprised by the prices on the. I'll probably order them on the web and run down to wally world to get them put on the wheels. Note I said put on the wheels, not the car. That's for me to do.

    They look like the Kumho 732 like I have on my 320. They are the smoothest tire I've ever run on it. And, believe me, you would notice anything that makes the ride feel smoother on that vehicle! I have 22560 Yoko A509 on my Z. They barely clear the strut in the front. Any larger and they wouldn't. Very smooth and very sticky. The only problem is that you can't get them anymore.

    Tks Stephen. Interesting isn't it how you have an up and coming country like Korea making these tires. They understand the market and know what to do make it go. Just like the Japanese did in the 60's and 70's.

    Then on the other hand you have places like France and Italy.
