This is true, although some may wish to sacrifice traction for longer wear or other things...
I just got the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetrics in 215/35-18 and 265/30-19. I got the fronts from Tirerack and the rears from Discounted Wheel Warehouse, but I think they too are now out of the 265 size although they are still listed on their website.
Tirerack did tell me though that the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 will be there soon and is offered in the 265/30/19 size (it is already priced in their system). The '2' is supposed to be lighter and have a higher wear rating. However, it isn't yet known if it will be produced in the 215/35/18 size for the fronts. It would be in 2012 at the earliest if they do.

I need to get it into a better setting, but here's a preview!
Here's another shot that is hopefully a little less 4x4 looking.
I have a steep driveway, and just installed the car's 4th chin spoiler, so the factory settings will have to do for now...
thanks for link
Spec is one thing but real life says otherwise...I ran a T1R 215/35/18 up front and it has a slightly stretched look, no rubbing. However I tried the Yoko in the same size and it rubs for sure!
How come no one here has suggested the Dunlop Z1 Star Specs? Those are the most popular in the s2000 group and they look/feel great.
Could I use the S-drives for 18/19 if I am dropped 1.25 or would I run the risk of rubbing?
Going back to 18"/19" tire sizes, there are no extreme performance tires in 18"/19" NSX sizes. At the time this topic was first created, the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric was available in 215/35-18 and 275/30-19, but that rear size has been discontinued. The only maximum performance tire still available in those sizes is the Sumitomo HTR Z III, so that's what I'd recommend to those looking for the best performance for 18"/19" wheels.

1995 x 18/19 DPE's x Tein Mono Flex w/ Edfc x Comptech Exhaust x Custom Test Pipes x Downforce Scoop x Short Shifter...too much to list.
I was looking for the latest info on tires to replace my fronts on my 94 stock NSX. This thread is interesting and I really like the look of the car posted earlier.
Some stupid questions if I may..
You've gone to 18/19 (front/rear?) wheels.. any particular brand recommended?
How does this affect performance and what is the main reason for this mod?
I see the recommendations for tires but it seems like a hit and miss situation as far as rubbing is concerned?
That's my car! Thanks for the pic. Saving it as an inspiration.
I'm not really sure how to make the call on the wheels. I will look around this forum and see if there are any discussions with details.
What are BBs ? And DPEs?
thanks for the info. your car looks great.
