Hello folks,
With 11,000 miles on the odometer, my stock Contis are shot. I admit that I am an aggressive driver, but I've never seen tires disintegrate on the outside like these contis. I'm looking to replace them with Michelin Crossclimate tires, but the stock size is only available in a passenger tire, with passenger tire like weight limitations. They make the same tire with a higher profile (60 vs 55) with the correct weight capability, but the change in side profile will result in a tire that is about 1" taller than stock. Did any of you use a 225/60 17 on your metris? Did it work out for you? Did it make a difference in performance such as pickup?
