Did I just read a 245/35? :-o omigosh.

I saw a merc CLS (?) - two door coupe, not convertible that seemed to have no tyres, only alloys. very very very very low profile tyres. and red color. your above prescription reminds me of the same!

Not as bad as it sounds if you have good roads, phamilyman. My car here runs 245/40 front and 275/35 rear.

CLS is a 4 door. Maybe you saw a red SL or SLK.

Did it have alloys with lots of think spokes ala the SL 55, Hitanshu?? If yes, then you saw a SL 500 with the reg. number DL XX X 1000.

better tires are #1 on the list. suggestions pls. stock setup is 235/45r18. output is 271 hp. 300 is what i'm aiming at in the near future.
So which size does your car have - 17" or 18"?
If you have 18" wheels, then stick to the size and just change over to performance tyres.

Kya Super Vader uncle, it clearly says in the post you quoted that his stock setup is 235/45 R18!

P.S. But then the first line says 17" alloys & tyres! Abe Anuj zyada peeli kya??

Does that tyre have any space left for the air to be pumped in?

Cool

apologise for the mix-up in the tire size! i think thodi zyaada ho gayi thi

Ok, so after many twists and some happy turns, I present to thee:

2008 Accord Coupe V6 Belize Blue Pearl. It really is the most attractive color for the 2 dr accord. Checked out a black coupe first in the morning. Then even contemplated getting a loaded CR-V. But then, literally out of the blue, Mo (my sales dude) says I got to wait a li'l bit longer and check this color out.

I was sold the minute this car rolled into the dealership. I'm thinking on the lines of dark gray 19''ers with either BF's funky new tire the TA/something something or evergreen Yoko S-drives. What do you say guys?

Just one pic as of now, more later

Acura TSX '09 or Audi A4 '07 or Pontiac GTO '04  EDIT: Bought 2009 Accord Coupe-img_0113.jpg

Please stick to 20" max. 22 on an Accord is a serious overkill.
