    Tire Size

    So my Marauder is coming due for tires soon, still have tread but the shopping has started.

    Current tire size is 255/45/18's up front and 265/50/18 in the rear.

    I cannot a rear tire in that size. I was aware that Nitto quit making the 555 in that size, but I cannot find any tires in that size.

    What size tires are folks running on stock wheels?

    3 years ago I put cooper cs5 ultra touring tires - 245/60/18 at all 4. I have 40k miles on them and still have 95% tire life. If your looking for a quiet comfortable cruiser tire Ive found the coopers to be secone to none.

    They come out to a 29.57" OD tire. Thats the largest tire I'd recommend on stock suspension. For reference yours is 28.43" currently. Stock is 28.61" [245/55/18].

    225/60 and 275/50 are close to stock size

    And the 255/45 up front?


    Hankook Ventus?


    At Decipha, I have traction control and I do not want to have to turn it off all the time so I cannot run the same size on all 4 corners.
