    Wheel and Tire Forum
    As topic states, I replaced the OEM Michelin MXV4’s with stock size 205/55/16 HR Yokohama YK420’s. What a huge difference! Anyway, the Yokohama’s are much stiffer in the sidewall and the handling is much improved. I was very disappointed with the Michelins, They felt too soft and the rain...
