CX-3 GT R215/50-18 tires

Is it true there are only two tire manufacturers that make tires for the CX-3 Grand Touring? I see only Yokohama and Pirellis are available?

You don't have to use exactly 215/50-18. Just keep the new tire sizes the same at all 4 corners and within 3% of the factory size.

I wouldn't go wider than 235 on the factory wheels but I've fit 245 on 18x8 wheels on mine.

Code:
