Ever since I read about the superb tire that is the Yokohama Advan Neova AD08 I’ve wanted a set for my Sling. Finished 3rd in the test below (see link) but the top two were not unidirectional and only bested the Yoko due to rain grip — which I care 0% about.
But……. right now the largest diameter the Yokos come in is 19”. Then again, their biggest 19” is a 305/30, so if I followed my plan to change wheels when I need new tires, would it be sacrilegious to actually go DOWN a wheel size in back? I know the vast majority of people trade up to go bigger & wider. And, of course, there are offsets & brake clearances to think of. Thoughts?
P.S. My Sling is a '16.5 Titanium gray with a lot of white & silver accents, plus red for "pop" (tubular frame, rear spring and fender guard).
