    Looking for 355 tires. Just got a set of Azenis 215 for another car and the grip is stunning. They are bringing out a new tire that is reported to have more grip that the 215.

    Anyone use Azenis on a 355 yet? Not the same size as stock on the back but likely close enough (275/35/18).

    The Falken 215's won't be available much longer and come only in small sizes anyways. The 615's are better overall, and come in more sizes, but still not the right size for us. I wouldn't feel comfortable with Falkens on the Ferrari anyways.

    On the magnesium wheels, i'm using the Pirelli's in stock sizes. On the custom aluminum wheels which are 1/2" wider than stock in the rear, I'm using BFGoodrich T/A KD's also in the stock 225/40 and 265/40 sizes. They are much stickier and responsive than the Pirelli's, but wear down faster and are louder on the road.

    Why?

    I used the 215 azenis on my track mule for years and loved them; the new 615 compound is said to stay more consistent and isn't quite as load at freeway speed. However, the new hankook ventus R2 is said to be even better than the azenis 615 (and cheaper).

    On the bottom of the link I posted are listed the correct size for the 355 front tire and 275/35/18 for the rear. I think this is close enough.

    After using the 215 on the street I want them on all of my cars, especially the 355.
