Default *TIRE RECOMMENDATIONS NEEDED

Need to replace two front 245/45R18 tires and two rear 255/45R18 tires on my 1956 210. Any recommendations for a quiet, smooth ride? Currently looking at Nitto Motivo tires or Nitto-NT555 G2.

Luckily there are lots of tire choices in those sizes, which is why I will be using one of those sizes on my 55 C4 car. I would like to somehow fit 255's on the front. I would love to see a picture of your setup. The Motivo's are supposed to be quiet and sticky. At least there not directional which helps. Pretty wild tread pattern though which looks cool.

I run Nitto's on all my vehicles as well as my 55, I would recommend them as a really good tire choice, I run the Nitto 450's on my 55

I have run Nitto 555's on a couple vehicles and have been very happy with them. Ride nice, quiet and grip well.

I have Nitto NT555 on my 55 and like the way they ride and handle. My son has DB tire wide whitewalls on his 59 Mercury built from Nitto NT555 G2 tires and he likes the ride and handling as well.

With your C4 set up you should have no problem with a 255 on the front. I have 255/40/17 front & 285/40/17 back on Corvette wheels with no rub issues at all. I actually ran the wheels and tires off our 90 Corvette for one summer with no rub issues at all also. 275/40/17's on all 4 corners.
