Default New tires .

I had been waiting for Goodyear to make the 315's again. I talked with a independent dealer back in January and he said like first part of April. So in mid March I contacted him again and then he said hey I actually found some at several dealers around the country. But I didn't want tires that were probably three or four year old. Plus with shipping it was far from a deal. I kept checking Tire Rack and the F1's were back. But by this time I was really eyeing up the Michelin Sport PS2's. I finally pulled the trigger and they were shipped to me in two days from their warehouse in Delaware. Now I can't wait to get them installed. Pics to follow. I went with the 275/40ZR17 up front and the 335/35ZR17's out back. Free shipping is always great. Plus no tax here in PA on tires.

do 335's fit on the OEM rims? I noticed not too too many options for original size besides Nitto.

I picked up my Z last week and the F1's it came with have tons of tread but an '08 date code. The car was kept indoors for the most part and they appear to be in great shape, but not sure how much risk there is due to the age alone.

Yes the 335's will fit on the stock 11" rim width. My stock painted saw blades also have a set of F1's that were purchased back in 09. They have lots of tread depth and no cracking at all. But you can tell they just don't have the traction they did when new. I'm leaving them mounted and the new tires I'm installing on a set of chrome A-molds I have.

would be curious to see them side by side if you are able to catch a pic before they're on the car. I checked a size comparo and it shows the 335's being 1.9% bigger diameter and 6.5% wider... don't know how noticeable that is in real life.
