Does any body besides Michelin make the 235/65/18 in Outline White Letters. I would another brand beside the Michelin, tire life is too short

There are a couple, but nothing good. Go wider. I went with 275/55/18 Toyos.

I went with the Mich again, when purchased new they have a 65,000 mile warranty. Way better than the 35,000 I got from the factory tires. As a side note I am wondering if the tires the factory put on were seconds since on the inside of 3 of my 4 original tires someone had written "2nd" with a white paint pen.

go with the BFG's they are a little wider and taller but last long and look good. :)

Which BFG's and size did you go with?

I just bought a set of Goodyear's Fortera Triple Tread. I was told it was the best tire for snow, ice, and wet conditions. Pricy, but well worth it. 60,000 warranty with a free 30 day trial if you don't like them. How can you go wrong?

What size did you go with bracksa?

235/65/18. The size is new to the Fortera line up. Drove it home tonight and the thing handles like a dream. Can't wait to play with it in the snow!:D

Is the Fortera a White Letter Tire or is it Blackwall?

Black wall on ours. Looks good on the black and gold EB.

Did you do the spare also? Did it fit underneath or is the outer diameter the same as stock?
