Thats the joy of plastidip - aside from the $50 or so for the cans, not much lost.

Basically since you recently bought it, you'll get $5k less than the purchase price - which is not the same as your out the door price. Tack on a couple thousand more there. ...

I don't think I am going with 235's, but if I did, I think they would be 40 series - I'd have to run it through the calculator to see if that worked. I wouldn't want a taller tire.

About to get a set of Summer PSS and before I stick with 215/45/17 I was wondering what the consensus was on the "optimal" tire size for this car was. (my tims are 17x7.75 if that matters)
