It's finally time to buy some summer tires for the grocery getter. I'm currently running Nexen 275 45 in front and 295 45 on the rear. They are very cheap tires that were on the car when I purchased it. I'm not really impressed with them. I'm looking for something reasonable not cheap. I will use these tires only part of the year so tire wear is a factor but not a big factor.

I also have question about tire width. When is tire width no longer useful for performance and just for show? My grocery getter weighs 2 tons and has some mild engine mods. No forced induction. I'm not totally sure I need 295 on the rear. Then again maybe it's just right. A little help please Oppo.
