255 / 50 WR 17
 
What do you guys think of that size of BFGoodrich g-Force T/A KDWS :?:
What about Bridgestone Potenza RE750 :?:

I couldn't find a Hi-Po Yokohama of that size.

Was talking with a clupgp member from Smithers (45miles from me) who has the g force t/a's and he told me they were crap in the rain but great on dry pavement?
I think the Potenzas are a better choice?

Funny, the T/A's are All Season (siped) and the Potenzas are Summer only tires (non siped). You would think that the T/A's would be better in the wet.

I may go with the Potenza's though because.....I hate driving in the rain. :roll:

Which ever brand you decide to go with that is the maximum size for the stock 17"s, 255/50/17 ;)

Did you try the Kumhos?

Made my decision today and ordered the Potenza RE750 tires.
255 / 50 WR 17 Ultra High Performance unidirectional Summer tire.
Rated for max. 169 mph or 270 kph for us Crazy Canuks :twisted:
