Alright guys need your help!!! I just recievied a set of fittapaldi diablo's 17x7. I need tires. I don't want to spend to much on them because the wheels will come off in the winter. I found this deal on the web on some nankang ns-1( 215/45/17) they are $89 bucks. But I never heard of this brand. Has anyone had any experiance with this brand or any other suggestions. Need Help please

thanks for the imput. But do they make the prada in a 215 45 17 I have only seen 205/45 and 215/40 I am a little concerned about having a sidewall smaller then a 45. Can I put a tire wider than a 215 on it with out having any problems with rubbing. because I plan to lower the car with H&R springs in 2 weeks

I am not sure what sizes the parada comes in. I just got the 205/45/zr16. My tires just came today. Took 2 days from Tirerack. Here is a pic of them.

go for good rubbers man. it's all about the drive! never heard of that brand either...better play safe. i got dunlop w-10s with 17" enkei tbsII 215/40r17. they're great...even in wet conditions. i was gonna get yokohamas but went for the dunlops instead...have you seen the striped bfgoodrich scorchers? they look sweet...but i'm sure those are strickly summer tires only. they come in red, blue and yellow. wanted those as well...but, i don't know...went with the conventional look. u gotta check it out though.

it is sure nice to get advice from people that have the same ride I have because after calling these places they just tell you what the computer in front of them tells them to say. I think that I am going to go with the pradas in the 215/40/17 oh by the way how do you like those H&R springs that is going on next in about 2 weeks

i think that 215s are the max recommended for a 7" wide rim. do the paradas come in 225/40?

I think that they do come in that size. I called tire rack and that guy told me to go 215's but I did ask about the 225 in the prada. I can't remember the price but the price for the 215/40/17 is $107 so I can't imagine the 225 being too much more than that.

Hey jdmxsix- How are your parada tires. I just got a set but I am waiting till the weather here in PA gets nice? Are they really grippy in the dry and wet? Also do you have any pics of your car. I dont remember ever seeing it.
