    Hummm ... could be a documentation error. That would make the full wheel smaller no ?

    I saw that a while ago and was shocked even though corporate cheating shouldn't really surprise anyone at this point. I will say that my recommendation of Nokian tires is based almost entirely on my own experience and the experience of others. I'm still comfortable saying that the R2 is one of the best (if not the best) studless snow tires out there based on that experience.

    Yes, it would make the outside diameter very slightly smaller. It's not a documentation error though, I saw a Model X at the service center this morning with the Michelin 20"s Latitude Sport 3 and the fronts were 255/45R20
