New Tahrs for myBoxster

Thinking to replace the rear tahrs (tires to you)on my new to me 09 Base,

Any opinions on 265/40x18's? or ???
Sunitimo HTR Z lll ?

Hello - that tire size should work. It looks like the base came with optioned 265/35 as well; so fitment shouldn't be an issue. I am not familiar with those tires, other members would need to comment from their experience. I've had really good luck with the hankook ventus v12 evo2 tires - they still look brand new around ~12k miles. Best of luck.

sumitomos are really cheap tahrs. They are quite bad. I bought them once and took them out .

I would buy another tahr brand.

Firestone indy are good budget tahrs.

Or go with bridgestone re-11 or re-71 for nicer racier tahrs
