Any Suggestions? 315 Sumitomo's from AM pics.

Hey Guys,

So I have noticed alot of talk around concerning the actual size and width of the Sumitomo 315's that are for sale on AM.

There is a picture circulating the internet that shows them stacked next to a pair of goodyears i believe and they are considerably lacking in width in comparison. Alot of people have said thats because the Sumitomos have softer sidewalls and are buckling.

Today i got my new wheels and tires from AM, fast and perfect (thank you AM!) and decided to snap a picture of the tread for you guys.

The actual width from sidewall to sidewall is as advertised at 12.5"

The "contact patch" itself is probably 11.5"....here are the pics!

Just put a new pair of black cobra R rims on mine with 315 nittos Looks amazing, I've heard a mixed bag of things with summintos and nothing but good things about the nitto series street tires (not the drag radials). So I went with the safer option
