Tire size question for '04 XT

Discussion in 'General Motoring' started by Y2KRedMustang, Aug 17, 2003.

  1. I really don't like the stock Yoko Geo's on '04 XT (low grip, to much flex
    in corners and not very grippy when braking). Any suggestions what to
    upgrade to? I live in Denver so winter driving is a must. Also what about
    going to a larger tire? What are the sizes that the XT can handle.

    I just took delivery of my XT yesterday and have the same observations about
    the tires. I do not need REAL winter tires, so I thought I'd pull the
    original wheels and tires for winter use and upgrade to some 235- 50 17s
    with a bit wider wheel. There seems to be plenty of room for a slightly
    wider tire and this size is nearly the same diameter as the originals so the
    speedo will not be affected.

    you want a narrower snow tire not wider.

    For snow you want a higher aspect ratio tire (60 instead of 50) that is
    narrower. Eddie
