Its funny they aren't listed but if you look at the big picture of the tire it is a a 225/45/17

These were supposed to come out the end of august. Go figure as soon as I buy something they come out.

It looks like things could get interesting for ST classes.

Did you guys look at the specs? If it's not a typo the 215/45-16s will be the bee's knees. They are half the weight of my 225/50 -16 RE01Rs and wider too.

Figures they don't sell them in 225/45/16.

I don't think I could fit 225/50/16 on stock suspension and goldies. Looks like I'll be going with 205/55/16 RE01R's..

I don't think a 225/50/16 would have a problem for stock suspension.

I'm running a 225 960 which has a section width of 9" and I don't have a problem and my cars pretty low. These tires aren't much wider, so I would think with a mild roll you would be able to tuck the 225's.

Never heard of these. Are they the new fad?

225/50 is the stock height. You should be fine with them

OMG!

14lbs for the 215/45/16!!! Width 9.4" vs 9.2" for the 225/50/16 @ 22lbs?

It doesn't state the treadwear, so it's hard to see what they will comparable to. I'm hoping that they will be <200 treadwear.. My tire guy was telling me about these and said that they were going to be 180 and slightly better than the Kumho MX which was still a decent tire.

There are far more options that are better than the Azenis. Having had both the Azenis and RE-01R's I can say that they are completely different.

Is that a serious question?

I just find the Azenis to be too oily when they heat up.
