I like these 35 section sidewalls much better than the size 40 sidewall I had. It helps with gear ratio and weight. The 40 sidewall filled the wheelwells a bit better, but not worth it. I think a staggered 245 front and 255 rear would be perfect for these wheels. I went with a 235 front and 245 rear to save some money in tires and gas since I now have a second set of wheels with slicks. These tires are a great deal right now as I got them 40% off. Great all around tire if you only occasionally see snow.
