Replacing 215/45R17 with 225/45R17 - thoughts?
I am very, very overdue to replace the POS Kumho's on my '09 SES. I have the 17" wheels, for what it's worth.
Anyway, I've been having a rough time finding any form of affordable 215/45R17 tires. If I kick the width up to 225's, the world of possibilities opens up and they are actually a decent amount cheaper to boot.
So here's the info. Daily driver, live in Seattle (read: frequent rain) and I enjoy a spirited drive as much as the next guy. Has anybody had any experience on bumping the width up a hair? The car has always had an awful understeering habit and I feel like the 225's may help with that as well.
Somebody correct me if I'm wrong.
