Is this a good price. Im getting Advanti Photons in 17inch with hankook ventus sport 255/45 on the rear and 235/45 on the front fitted, balanced and alignment for $1700 ? From what ive seen its seems pretty good. Is a bit dearer because of the rubber but thats the rubber I need.
What do yas think

Why different width front to rear? Makes rotating tyres harder.

ahh because the 255s are the only tyre available that have the right load rating for the rear but they are too wide for the front so I went 235s

I got those tyres in 235/45 front and rear, awesome rubber too, lasted me over 2 years.

You should try getting bigger rims I reckon though. I have 18's atm, and next wheels I want to try going bigger, 20" hopefully.

Yeah 17inch is the biggest rubber I can get to keep it legal with the load ratings because its a one tonner. I could go illegal of course but dont really want to at this stage
TIP: Dont buy a one tonne rated ute. lol
