It seems Tire Rack doesn't have the size. I may have been looking at Simple Tire, and not Tire Rack at the time, I don't recall...too many tire sites to peruse.

Good to read your comments mate.
Any reason you got a larger tyre than the recommended size from Suzuki.
I have the awd and the shop owners claim this can't be done as it will muck up the second diff..
I agree with your comments with the Speedo vs GPS the difference do my head in as I'm not sure which one is more correct. Mine seems to be lower on the GPS than the car

@rossirob73...if your post is directed towards any of my recent posts in this thread, the tire size is what the websites pull-up for a 2010 AWD GTS Kizashi. Just went out and checked my door jamb sticker, and the size I have are a correct match...on a U.S. spec model. As far as alternate tires sizes on AWD/4WD vehicles goes, as long as all four tires are the same size, no negative effects other than speedo being off or maybe a bit of seat-of-the-pants differences. No harm, no foul.
