I got a new set of tires even though the fronts still had plenty of tread left. I estimate about 60% tread left.

They're about 25lbs ea if you want to check how much shipping will cost from 22180.

Asking $40/each

Do you know if the tires looked stretched (rounded shoulders) when mounted? I bought new tires (245/35) but am having fitment issues and was wanting to experiment with stretching a more narrow tire.

^ even tho they're smaller tires, their profiles bigger ( 40).
So, they're thicker than your 245/35's. You're probably gonna have fitment issues w these too.

if you're looking for a more rounded sidewall a 225 will give you that. I went from 225 to 245 on the fronts like many do and and my tires definitely look more "fat" even w/ the lower profile ratio. Remember, its 225/40 is 40% of 225 (90mm) and 245/35 is 35% of 245 (85.75mm).

personal opinion? it will definitely be more rounded
