Hi there

My Take Five wheels have Michelin Pilot HX MXM4 225/45 R17's.

These are supposed to be the stock tired.

Hope that helps!

Thanks for the info, just wanted to make sure when I replace the worn Michelins, I get the right size.

Here's the GN, mostly stock except for bigger 44 turbo, stretch stock location intercooler and Camaro LT-1 Mass Air Flow sensor. All Turbos are fun to drive!
