So I've been researching H-Rated tires and have had trouble finding them in the size needed (235/45/17). I also did research and people mentioned you can deviate from the suggested size but I'm not really sure by how much. If anyone could clue me in what sizes I could put on my TL and if it really is ok to go with H-Rated tires it would be GREATLY appreciated as I clearly know nothing. Also, if anyone could suggest a good tire for under $100/per that has 50k+ tread warranty that would be helpful as well as I plan on getting these in the next week or so!
It ain't gonna happen for under $100...And I'd start by saying I don't recommend you downgrade to an "H" tire.
Where do you live? Do you need an all season tire? Go to tirerack.com and do a tire search by OEM size (235/45/17). There are a few under $100, but none with a 50K warranty. For a little over $100, you can get a quality tire with meets OEM specs....
