    hey guys,

    hope everyone is well ?

    ive noticed i need to change ny rear tyres due to nornal wear and currently i have monroe gt sport shocks installed all round with SSL front and SL rear. springs.
    I can feel its firmer in the rear as i know having comfort when lowered is hard as im running on 245/35/20 tyres on my 20" supersports.

    Can i go with changing both my rear tyres with a bigger sidewall or something to help with the ride in the rear ?

    thanks all :)

    I've had a wheel alignment and everything is Good, I just noticed I need a new rear tyre due to normal wear.

    Just my question is can I maybe go a tyre with a bigger side wall to help improve the comfort in the rear ?

    Not without the speedo being out...

    Best bet for a more comfortable ride, would be change rim diametre, so you have more sidewall in the tyre....
