No definitely not. I have wider 9.5 inch rims, which is why I run 265. Run 245's on the stockers. Otherwise things will suck!

I am still unclear about the alloy wheels and whether bolts/lugs are required on all 4 wheels or only in the back, with nuts in the front. I bought a set of OE alloy wheels for my '87 Westy, and it came with 2 sets of lugs.

Im on my 3rd set of stock tires... bought the other 2 slightly used... neither of them have lasted me more than 10K with spirited street driving and occasional autocross/gymkhana... i love how responsive these tires are and grip very well too as long as the temp is above 50...as for your tires, i would say yes they are probably dry rotting, ive never heard of this happen to these tires before.

my stockers lasted 24k miles with mostly highway driving & plenty of spirited driving.. but they were in desperate need to be changed when I swapped them out for my A/S tires.. I want to go back to the stock tires for their awesome responsiveness.. if only they would have more tread life!!

Don't sell the stock tires for snow tires of All Seasons, that's just silly.

The stock Advans are fantastic tires, except in the snow. Buy a set of snow tires, toss them on the stock rims, and then just move the Advans back over when it becomes nice. Then buy a larger set of rims, another set of high performance summer tires when the Advans die, and then voila: You have a winter set and a summer set.

Tossing out the Advans is like tossing out the baby with the bathwater.

Agreed. I just got Star Specs. The stock Yoko's are 400/ea where I live. Great tires, but DD will wear them quickly.
I love my stock tires. They are super sticky, but wear terribly. I got a second set of beater rims and put some all seasons (Conti DWS) and they really weren't that bad. With the last blizzard we had in VA they worked pretty well.
