thanks! so basically, many here are probably running 91 tires at higher psi... maybe that's good enough?
I agree, there are many tires available in the 94 load rating and 225/45R17 size, but only 1 from Michelin and seemingly nothing from Continental. I'm not going to touch the Korean/Chinese brands, but there are some Goodyear/Bridgestone/Dunlop/Yoko options...
the 235 tire is standard on 2006+ and corresponds with the stock 16" size. Looks like even the 2006+ rims are 7" wide. I guess there was something I read somewhere that had me concerned (tire rack charts say 235 is measured on 8" and specified for 7.5-9" widths, but maybe that varies tire to tire)... good to know that is an option. More tires are XL in that size.
were your tires like the ones pictured below? I think they made a few NRZ's back then, so it's quite possible you had another style, but wow, those sure look asymmetric and directional... maybe the actual asymmetry doesn't matter so much which side it's on? lots of tires nowadays look directional but aren't!
