    Default Square sidewall tires?

    Hey dudes and dudes. Long time no post.

    I'm thinking of mounting my old wheels on the new car. They are 17x8/9 and I'd be doing a proper FWD stagger, like this:



    Now I am debating tire sizes. I'd prefer to go with a 245/40 all around just for ease of rotation, but I'd also consider mixing sizes if need be.

    What are some examples of tires with very square sidewalls? Is anyone on this board running FWD staggered wheels and/or tires?

    I had RS3s and found the sidewalls to be quite square

    very nice looking tire plus they perform great, at least when it's dry...
