Front tires look stretched

1993 Views 5 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  Asylum
Hello all,

Have you noticed that the front stock tires look stretched on the rim? I am in the market for all-season tires and have considered going one size wider in the front to get a better look. Already have the Continentals DWS priced up for order since my boss likes them on the G8.

Has anyone with snow tires or all-season tires gone with a slightly larger size up front or is there a clearance issue? The stock tires are stretched to the point that the curb rash protector lip really does reach beyond the rim like the back tires.

Appreciate your input!

most newer tires are moving to a Symmetric Tire. those tires do not have the larger tread block on the outer sides like a Asymmetric tire. therefore making them look like they are stretched but are actually the tread is just rounded. most tires companies are moving that way because they can get more milage out of them and are quieter. BUT they don't look at "cool"
