Hoosier doesn't make a 245/45-18 so I assumed he meant the 245/35-18 A6 which
is only 24.7" tall vs 25.3" for the 295. I see now however that Hoosier lists a
245/40-18 with a listed height of 25.7" which is taller than the 295. However
it's tread width is 9.3" vs 10.8 for the 295 so I'm not sure it would be a
performance advantage. It would be interesting to hear if anyone's tried them
and what the results were.
