Ventus what?

There's a few...

Ventus Z214
Ventus R-S3
Ventus V12 evo K110
Ventus S1 noble2
Ventus V4 ES H105


IMO, the Z214 would be pretty boss.

Also, why such a high sidewall? The overall diameter on that size is going to be too much.

But why? I have a set of oversize tires. If they weren't so wide, they'd really suck.


There's also more than one Direzza. Which do you have?

Direzza Sport Z1 Star Spec
Direzza ZII
Direzza DZ101


I recently got a set of ZII's and I like them a lot.

Take out the spacers?


The Star Spec is a very good tire. Ziex 912 is going to be crap compared to Star Spec.

You never answered my question about the Ventus. Ventus R-S3 is going to comparable to Star Spec.

OP: It will also throw off your speedometer/odometer just as a heads up

You may hit your lower strut perch. Too tall. 205/50 R17 clears inner strut. so adding another 10 mm not too sure about that.
