I personally dont like the look. If its the Generals you are looking at, they also have a sidewall that stick out abnormally...

You want a cheap tire get a set of Nexens.

Performance wise they may hop and jounce around a bit more.

Im sure you will get mixed responses, stick around long enough someone will say the 45 series is the best and ONLY option..l0l

You want a cheap but good tire get a set of Nexens.

Been running 305/45/22's for 115,000 miles. Softer ride and only changes the speedometer reading by a mile or so at 80. A man would have to have pretty good eye sight to tell the difference in the 40 vs. the 45's without a built in self regulating mic------or a six pack of two of adult beverages.

The tire is over an inch taller overall. Someone who is use to eyeballing sizes can spot that easily.

Well, I wear hearing aids so that could be my problem telling the difference. Also just had my cataracts removed and realized those green things out the window have tiny leaves.

The aspect difference between the 40 and 45's is a little noticeable after I looked at a set mounted. I have the 40 generals like the look and tread pattern. I do not have any personal experience running a tire with a different aspect ratio. So as far as comfort and performance I can not say, but as far as look there is a little difference. This is best described as the difference between a true sport tire and a sporty like truck tire. To each their own I choose the 40's after looking at the 45's. Good luck. Think the difference is 3/4 of an inch in sidewall.
