It all depends on what kind of tires you get. You get soft or hard compound tires. Soft will make your car handle a lot better, but will not last as long and vise versa for the hard compound.

Ok, say SO-3s or something comparable.
I guess my question was being asked w/ emphasis on the fact that it would be a staggered setup vs. same size all around...
Anyone?

thanks! 8)

depends on how much you drive a month and how hard you drive..........

my friend had the 225 and 255 so3's and they lasted him less than a year.......

I've wondered the same, though with standard 215/45 in front.

What I would be concerned about is that 225's have a larger diameter than the 245's. That would mean that you are running with larger tires in front than the back. Not by a huge margin, but some.

Yea, cause' of that I've decided to go with 255/35 in the rear and 225/40 in the front...

i am currently running on Toyo T1's for my Volks

18x7.5 front with 225/40/18 - doesn't rub
18x8.5 rear with 255/35/18 had to shave the lip off of the quarter but there isnt any rubbing.

As to wear, my tread is nearly the same, as brand new. I drive my car everyday about 120miles a day.
