Paul, I have Sumitomo HTR Z which is an older model. My tire sizes are 315/35-17 and 245/40-17 mounted on 12" and 10" width rims. The tires looks stretched even though they should fit those rims per spec in tirerack website. Either the specs are wrong or the tires are smaller (narrower) than other brands for the given size.

Chris, check Pelican's parts catalog - should hopefully give you stud insight (errrrrr).

good idea on the WTB / WTS stud post Pat... will do!

Thanks for the datapoint MikeD(!)... I know the Sumi section width is 11.6" compared to say a Bridgestone @ 12.3".

Sadly, the (other, morer challengeder) Texan is right in what I 'twas referring to - the tires are too stretched.

Some pixorz for yer viewing pleasure...

...now, 1)... it's fawking COLD here in Sunny CT - a balmy 8*F this fine a.m. so hence the ghey gloves, and B) I swear the bling pic wasn't 6SpeedOnline intentional, just quick craptastic cellshotz whilst runnin out the door to werk:

rear:


rear / back:

yes I know my ballar shoes need shine:


front:



what say you regarding the lip / mount / stretch? Querious...

Are you sure that is a glove/finger in the first few pics or are you CT boys different, as you would say, "down thar"?

Well, that stretched tire with protruding wheel lip is looking decidedly "modern" (no idea what to do about it, other than try a different tire, but that would get expensive in a hurry)!

Ronster-

Not eggzachry sure whatchyou mean - but - if yer suggesting I'm hung like "one"... yer sadly mistaken. Tho... I may not hit bottom but I sure knock the heck out of the sides.

Going to swap them for Bridgestone RE760s - 'just' need to bother a friend for mounting again (and deal w/ feeling like an ubertewl as usual) and exchange these per TR's 30day policy. Oh and get to spend another $100 - joy!

Will go 255F from 245 & 295/35 instead of 30s in rear to try to beef it out a bit.

Deffffffffinitely decidedly too modern in that regard. Exacerbates my not-low-enough-frozen-in-place-corner-balanced-already ride height as is unfort, not to mention not being a fan of stretched / rubber bandz. Thought 30 profile would best match the rolling diameter, ah well.

Wonder if I should go 45s from 40 up front as well? Thoughts?

When i was a kid we used to have a chrysler newport that had police rims on it. The beads on those wheels were extra tight to prevent the tire coming off the rim during hard cornering or something like that. Any way when ever he got new tires they wouldnt seat on the beads when filled with air. there was always a space like you show in your pictures. So he had to always have the tire place put them on the car anyways, then he would go find a nearby parking lot and do circles as fast as he could in both directions until they seated with a loud pop. then back to the tire place to have the air pressure adjusted.

Paul,
Regarding the Sumi's are the front and rear tires identical in the area where it mounts to the rim? If yes then it's obvious that the rear tires are not fully seated. But if the front and rear tires are different (i.e. rear has no shoulder beads whereas the front does) then the rears are fully seated. Anyhow I agree that the rim shows too much on the rears. The front looks good albiet a little stretched.

Before you buy another set of tires I would do a full blown investigation on tire sizes and brands for 11" and 9" width 18" wheels.


rear:



front:

thanks Mike!

Just hung up w/ Tire Rack... my bud that sold me the wheels suggested asking them to do the dismount / mount... hadn't occurred to me that they've got that equipment there as they sell wheel/tire packages. Duh? I was thinking of it as strictly a ginormous warehouse (I'm fortunate it's 7mi from my office - convenient, never pay shipping!).

They agreed to do it no charge, and will exchange the Sumi's for Bridgestone RE760s which appear to run nominally wider - $150 out of pocket for the change. Not terrible.

Went with 255/40 & 295/35 this time, with hopes the added width in front and profile in rear will fill some of the fender gap I've got goin on... and appease Ron-nazi-e's bling bling accusations appropriately (PHEW!!!).

Schwing!

ps. Ken, all I've got is Blues Brothers visions runnin thru my head after reading that story! Classic...
