Consider 245/275 instead...my experience 235/275 produces too much understeer
but does it look right? and... will it rub in the front... i've heard it will rub when the wheel is fully turned...

They'll improve over the first thousand miles, new tires are always a bit louder.

Sweet

Wow, thanks for the heads-up on these tires. I'm looking for tires myself and would rather not shell out for Michelin Sport Pilots, and most of the Nankang reviews sound positive and you can't beat the price.

E90AWMT, please do post pics when you have a chance. Thanks!

There are 2 type of NSII's. One is H rated the other is Y rated. Which did you have?

Mine were H rated and had a soft side wall which made them quiet. The H rated ones are 300 treadwear and the Y rated ones are 200.

If I were you... I would wait and get more expensive tires because I think I will get anoyed with the road noise very soon...

Right... I should have waited for better tires but when you have your wheels sitting there for a few weeks and no tires you get a little impatient. These are not bad tires at al... they are just a bit too loud for my taste.

I have the Y rated with 200 Treadwear. I hope that they do quiet down with the first 1000 miles because they are definitively louder than my stock RFT.

I went with 235/35-19 front and 275/30-19 rear. these size tires are just about exactly the same height so this is why I went with them.

Update!!!

Took my first long trip and I must say that I was wrong. The tires behaved great. There are some surfaces of the road that they are a bit loud but there are other surfaces that they are completely quiet. I just raised the volume of the radio when I heard them more and that did it.

Over all... not bad. I thought that I was going to bite the bullet and buy goodyears or michellins and sell these at a discount but I think that I'll keep them for a while because the behaved really good.
