Thanks for your excellent input folks. New I could count on you.

Now I'm educated enough to make wise purchase.

Yup, 255/50/r16'* on stock rims. To make them fit we had to pound back the weld inside the rear wheel wells o it wouldn't puncture the tires when the shocks compressed. Also, at ful lock they barely rub the plastic frame gaurds inside the front wells. If your not careful here it can cause them to shift slightly and hit the cv boot.

But I love these tires. I've been able to out corner many cars including camaros, mustangs, and even a porsche once. They are worth the $$$.

Gordy, how do those big meats handle in wet conditions? I would assume you don't use those in winter?

I use them all year round. Surprisingly good traction...except on pure ice..then they're like big skies.
