Nice!! I like the extra sidewall to soften the ride. I'm assuming there's no problems fitting a larger tire 295/40/21 onto the stock rims? Does the extra diameter mess up the speedometer or trip computer? I wonder if 295s will cause even worse gas mileage, or if the difference is negligible.
the stick rims have no issues with the 295’s. Plenty of room and the stock rims have no issues with 295. Easily fit 305 but unsure if they fit in fender wheel that big. .

I'm tracking all, I was simply saying it won't be enough of an effect for me to care. The need for more sidewall is the reason I bought them. My wife rubbed the drivers side rims on a curb, if I would have had an extra 1/4" sidewall it would never have happened. That's the main reason. According to discount tire anything wider than a 295 won't fit but they are usually very conservative. I do appreciate the info and insight though.

I normally love Michelin tires but the Michelin will ride rougher being more sport tuned. I had these tires on my Durango Hellcat in 21 and absolutely loved them. Usually continental have very nice wheel lips. I added the spare tire package about a month or two ago. She hammered the curb though hahahaha damn she crushed it. Not sure anything would have helped minus my truck tires.
Love the review, but a personal opinion due to have Michelin and these prior. Love them both. Either way, massive upgrade over stock tire imo.
Not exact same cars but I bought over 50 cars last year during the car craze. Did some flipping and thought of keeping a few and replaced tires more than I should have. It’s just a preference for me. With a muscle car, i definitely prefer the Michelin 4s sports over conti’s sport contacts. All season I prefer conti’s.

Ian, wow just let it go man. Everyone has their preferences. Go buy the Michelins. You can have the last word, and I won’t reply after this one. This is my solely my opinion. I’ve driven alot of cars with different tires is all. Have a nice day.
