Not too many to choose from in 205 but thinkin' bout this one...
CINTURATO P7 RUN FLAT
https://www.tirerack.com/tires/tire...R6CP7RFT&vehicleSearch=false&fromCompare1=yes
Anybody run it, or any other 205 RF?
Jus' caint talk myself into givin' up the ground clearance to go 195/55,
afraid we'll end up scraping hard parts and on our heads.
Been runnin' 205/55 NRF for along time now but would like to try a RF.
Suggestions, opinions, practical experience on a tall/taller RF greatly appreciated!
TIA:thumbup:

Tried a couple on my 08 but decided the 195/55 was best. The 195/55 is about the same height as stock tire and probably has more ground clearance than stock when leaning.

I don't know anything about the 205 version of the P7, but it has been reported here that the 195 version did not hold the road very well. If they are made with the same compounds it might be one to avoid?


Tirerack has a good price on the SnowControl right now.
Thanks for the insight 'bout P7...
and yeah, I sure wish they made the SC in a taller size.
(or the Drive Guard lighter)
Didn't know you were under the weather, prayers for speedy recovery Brother!

Yeah, gotta be taller than 195/55, and 195/60 doesn't come in RF.
Really would like to try RF but may hafta start looking for narrower NRF.
Only reason I'm lookin' to change is my Riken Raptor's so square (tread's 7" across) but it's real light, tall, and sticks like paint, so I've jus' been puttin' up with it.

I’m running a 205/55 Driveguard runflat. It’s been doing good. We went out west for a 6600 mile jaunt. It did real good on that trip while towing my trailer one up. 100 MPH was our top speed. I’ve run two up and with my trailer also. Maybe this helps.

Thanks Gents...'preciate the intel on the DG.
It's only 1 lb heavier than the tire I'm runnin' now.
Might give it a try:thumbup:
