I meant 2.5is....you are probably right on the 3.6Rs... I posted new tire info on another thread. When I opted for the 17" wheels (bought from another member here off of his 3.6R) the tires I purchased were 225/50/17s. Although they fit, I ended trading (Cooper Zeons) for 215s (Cooper CS4s). The Load factor is greater on the 225s and the Zeons were too hard for the car (a highly rated UHP all season tire I might add). The 215s - CS4s are a Touring High Performance tire which have a softer sidewall. Much beter suited for the 2.5i. SOA emailed me to say that 225s were never intended for the 2.5i and my Dealer said the 225s ZEONS were too agressive. They were right.
