Best Tires for Detroit Rims

Recommended Posts


so i have the detroit alloys on the XK8. one of the fronts is not looking very healthy, certainly not good for the motorway. so, need to get a new set of fronts. the measurement on the front tires is 255/35zr20 (97y), and currenty has dunlop sport maxx. could anyone confirm this is the right size of tire for this rim?

also, the back tires are wider and have pirelli 285/30zr20. is there any advantage to this set up? the previous owner seems to have installed mud runners that flare out a touch and wondering if thats beacuase of the wider back tires. 

anyways - any tips appreciated. was thinking to get pirelli for the front so they are all the same brand, althoguh not sure how important this is!

A quick search revels the Michelins could be a good bet! one last question: is the wheel overlay on the detorit allow easy to remove and put back when you change the tire? could any tire company do this? the detroit allow is the split rim with the inlay..
