And on the NSX, they're actually four different tires, left and right,

the left and right rims on the front or the back; the inside and

they're not 'different', they are rotational. nothing new.
By the way, the M3 also has different sizes front and back and also
Yes, but the M3 doesn't have a different *part number* for the left
and right tires, does it? You can swap the tires side to side on the
M3 rims. You can't do that on the NSX.
It's possible to tune the NSX's suspension alignment such that you
will get the ride and handling of your life, but it will eat the rear
tires in 2,000 miles, and the fronts in 5,000 or so. Ask me how I
possible on any car with independent suspension.
But it's pretty pointless on most cars.
Those tire eating alignment settings are actually the first, original
Honda alignment spec. It's a long story, Google can tell you if
