I really like the wheels and tires, however I wish I would have know 235 doesn't go all the way to the edge of the rim for being 8.5. 245 tire would definitely look better.

Great look and performance

These tires are a serious bang for your buck -- really good traction and performance in dry conditions, and they handle wet conditions very well. Also, I have 205 width, 45 height tires on my 7" wide wheels and they look great!!

The Ventus V12 Evo2’s are my first set of summer tires I have put on the V. It has been one of the best things I’ve done to this car with a simple change in tire setup. They grip very well, and has really awaken the capabilities that my 1st Gen V can achieve. These tires were recommended by fellow V series track rats who have nothing but good things to say about it. The price for performance is really good. I can not wait to display this cars full potential at COTA with these tires!

Great tires. Really grip the road. I also found them to be rather quiet although other reviews said the opposite. As far as Fitment Industries they were unbelievable from start to finish. Great customer service. These guys make sure you are satisfied no matter what. They responded to my questions quickly and accurately and never once made me feel like i was being a pain. As a matter of fact, Fitment Industries makes you feel like youre the only order they have and that all they care about is your satisfaction. Great company
