I and my wife hate EMT Run Flat noise and rough ride....

by SONNY MARTIN
(YORK , Pa.)

I want to get rid of Run Flats , and go to a civilized 5 wheel Vette with spare and jack in trunk. My idea is , go with 17' painted silver wheels on all four corners with Goodyear Eagle LS-2 245/45R17 tires , a much quieter ,smoother tire with high performance comfort , rated at 130 mph , and load index of 95. Will there be an issue running the 17x8.5 wheel on the rear drive , I've noticed these Speed Lines have different code #'s for different offsets , which code # should I use , I believe it starts with 959.... , how about the ones that are on my front? Maybe I'll pull them off the front and place them on the rear hub to see if they rub the Caliper for starters. Please reply a.s.a.p., I want to get this resolved before snow-fall....

Bought 2000C5 with Firestone run flats. Terrible ride. Bought Coopers 17 front 18 back. Softer rubber and very sticky. Improved the ride 100%.
