Hey guys I've noticed this today
Both tires are 245/45/20
However 2 inches difference for the set of 4
It means a possible 1/2more "meat" on the ground.
I'd like to share with you because personally
I'm impressed about this difference.

Although, I have to add a comment. Last summer I went back to the F1's from Michelin pilot super sport and...what the heck was I thinking. Once these F1's are roasted, it's back to the Michelin's and never to return to either one of those. Just a nicer tire all the way around(performance and ride comfort). But of course that's just my opinion.

I agree. But I had those tires for free. So I'll use them during normal days and I'll use nitto ns05 for track days.

I agree re: the F1's. Mine only lasted about 10,000 miles and I moved to Continental Extreme Contacts which in my opinion are better all around tires. YMMV.

I'll bump for visibility, as I'm also curious as to why the two tires with the same specs (245/45/20) would vary by so much.

Found on another forum

Goodyear 275's 10.5" wide
Vred "315's" 10.9" wide (smaller than 295 but possibly would measure bigger on a wheel wider than 10"?)
Nitto Invo 315's 12.4"
Goodyear/ BF Goodrich 285's 11.75" (approx)
Michelin Super Sport 295's 12.6"+ (massive width for a "295")
Toyo Proxes ST 315's 12.1"
Yokohama Advans 295 12.2"
Dunlop 315's 12.25" (approx)
Bridgestone Potenza 305's 12.32" (when mounted on an 11" wide wheel)
Continental Extreme Contact 315/35/20 (approx. 12.6" - whatever the actual width of this Conti is, it seems to just about max out the stock wheel well down to the mm while avoiding poke or rubbing on a 10" wheel)
Pirelli PZero 305's 12.6"+ (approx. , Somewhere around this threshold in width you probably run out of wheel well on a stock ride height LX without having suspension/ interior side contact or poking beyond flush with the fender?)
Michelin Pilot[​IMG] PS2 295's 12.6" (approx)
Pirelli PZero 315's 12.9+"
Yokahama Advan Sports 305's 12.9" (approx)
Michelin Pilot PS2 305's 13" (on a 11.5" wide 19" CCW wheel)
Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3 305's 13.1" (unmounted)
BF Goodrich KD's 315's 13" (approx)
Toyo Proxes R888 315's 13.0"
Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3 315's 13.5" (approx)
Michelin Super Sport 315's 13.5"+ (LX's at stock height & proper offset will still have interior side contact and considerable excessive poke with this width of tire)

I agree. I went with Pirelli P Zero PZ4 (Sport) which are the update to the P Zero and I'm much happier with the isolation and they are way "stickier"

These are supposed to be improved from he tread life and performance of the regular P Zero but time will tell. I know Pirelli has a bad rep for tread life.
