If you have them, do you change them in the winter?

What actual size? (just curious)

Most would say 45-series tires are low-profile. That's just not the whole story.

A small car with 195/45-(any-diameter) has a sidewall-height of about 88mm (a bit less than 3-1/2 inches).

A large car with 285/45 has a sidewall about 128mm (over 5 inches). That's about the same height as the sidewall of a 195/65 tire.

(mine are 235/45 so I guess they're between those 2 extremes)

Best tire design ever. Yesterday i stupidly drove over a curb stop with my rear wheel. Cut the corner too sharp in the parking lot. The tire sailed over it nicely with no bottoming. (I did the same thing this past winter, gotta pay more attention)

They need to put these tires on all cars as standard equipment. Tough tires.
