Hardly no one makes 215's anymore. All of us have upgraded to 225's for the fronts and stayed with 245's in the rear or gone to 255's. The 255's fit on the stock wheel and have only minor rubbing on "some" cars for a short time.

Also... most of us have ditched the RFT run flat tires bc the sidewall is extremely hard and makes for rough driving. Get normal Michelin tires with a "XL" rated side wall for added stiffness. This will help with the loss of turn in response you sacrifice with going from RFTs to regular tires. That is the only downside. Regular performance tires will make the car ride SOOO MUCH smoother and nicer.

You might also look for Michelin PILOT SPORT A/S 3+ (all seasons) in the 225 size too.

Or search for all season Michelins.. 225 and 245s.

BEST SELLER
Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ (W- or Y-Speed Rated)

245/35ZR18 92Y XL


Don't buy Michelin PS2's. They are an older tire and are not that great for all conditions, especially rain. Go with PSS or PS4 or A/S 3+(all seasons).
