I thought run flats were standard across the board and that 20s were one of the key differentiators on the RS 400 between it and the non S 300t. Run flats are terrible in every guise I've used them..better to wear em out quickly and then get a set of non rfs and a can of fix a flat or a slime kit.What is going on with tire sizes on the Red Sport 400 RWD?
In anticipation of the availability of the Build option on the Infiniti web site I've been trying to configure a 400 RWD. The material that I've been using consists of the Q60 brochure available as a PDF. I've also been using the chart that is generated on the Build pages named "Compare All Models". On the strength of those docs I've decided that I would like to consider placing an order for a 400 RWD. One factor in this choice is the conventional, not run flat, tires in a 19" size. According to the above docs these are standard on the 400 RWD. Now that the Build process is available the output states that the tires are run flat and 20". What gives? Dealer is trying to sort out the inconsistency. Anybody else not wanting run flats have an answer? I'd hate to think that I may be reconsidering my decision based on change in tire/wheel size and type. I don't think 20" or run flats are a good idea in northern Ohio.
When you click on the PRINT option at the end of the build what size/type of tires are shown? 19" or 20". If 20" what does your dealer say about this?I was told by my dealer that the q60 Red Sport would have 19" run flats regardless of RWD or AWD option.

19 it is, 20s are an add-on. The car is amazing ! Looks gorgeous and drives like a dream . Cant wait to see and drive the Red Sport.
I sure hope that is true. Could be that the Build function is not working properly. I've already submitted feedback suggesting that is the case. I would encourage others to do the same on the Infiniti web site. Also hope everyone that does submit feedback will post the response here.My dealer has said 19 but will confirm with him when I go to test drive in a few minutes.

This is definitely the place to talk about these things ! Obviously all of this activity happens in our frequent trips to Mexico of course ....haha seeing that picture puts a smile on my face =p
So far, although I have the 300HP version, I do at times think " i wonder what 400hp would feel like on this car" or " would 20 inch make it look EVEN better.
Then I drive it and I kinda forget it all, and am happy because it goes fast when I need it, from 65- illegal speeds.
I road home and found another infiniti coup older version he was staring me down we just road down the entire interstate at around 100ish after every police intersection.
Should I even talk about these things here? haha
Just checked the Infinitiusa web site. Looks like it has been updated. For the 400 RWD it does now indicate 19" staggered wheels and tires as standard. The tires are stated to be conventional summer tires. Wonder if they will be supplying a collapsible tire and wheel? All of this is what I was hoping for. No mention of a 20" option. No problem for me as the roads here in Ohio would be quite rough on them. And I do not want run flats. I did not check other models, just the RWD.On the Canadian site infiniti.ca the Red build has the 19 inch standard and the 20 as additional. On my order guide , 20 is coded as ADD.
