It's the same height as the original equipment tire, but in extra load only carries an 85 load index! Remember, you need at least 91. So, let's see, pay over $1000 for a set of BFGs, wear them out in 10,000 miles or less, do it all over again! Note to self: send e-mail to Toyo - we need to make this size!
More likely to blow them out than wear them out. Been selling Coopers four years now and those who go below the load rating, more often than not, the tread seperates, comes apart (With it still having between 4 to 7/32nds).
When we are talking about 20s and tires already so close to the fender, when you go big on this car, your going to pay big in repairs when the tire fails because you were too wrapped up in showing off to everyone.
To give you a recent example, one blew out on a minivan and did $2,500 worth of damage.
