Not sure of size/fitment ... someone else will have to chime in there. As far as Michelin as a brand goes ... there are a couple of members that run on Michelin's. In my past experience, you can't go wrong with a Michelin tire. They typically aren't going to have the coolest tread pattern or niftiest looking sidewall (they aren't ugly by any means), but they do make good tires ... thus the price.
Post pics with a review when you decide and get them on... there is always someone asking about fitment and experience. Good Luck!
Thanks northern rider as usual you've got the answer. I like the idea of running the 255 all the way around so I can rotate them. I know it's not necessary to rotate them on our cars but I can't help it.
Maddog I have the toyo's 275 40's all the way around right now and they are a decent tire but I'm looking for better than decent. Need better wet traction, as I'm now hauling a mini me around. The other thing is the road noise is a little loud for my tastes. I'll let you know but if they were good enough for northern rider I'm sure I'll like them.
Tirerack.com rate them at 8.62 in the dry and 7.67 in the wet. Have a look at how some of the other big names compare and you will see why I buy the super sports and have them shipped here to Australia.
Since I had the car I tried the proxies everyone raved about, also tried Sumitomo HTR Z111 plus a few other in the MAX performance category but the Michelins are by far the best.
