These would work on our car? How would they affect the car? I can't get a PCM for a few months so I couldn't change tire size for a bit...
Yes these work and you dont have to compensate anything. A bit wider but the same diameter (235=27.17") ( 255= 27.03") speedo of 235=60mph, 255=60.3mph

To compare tire sizes go here and fill in the blanks.

Thanks to all for the replies to my original question that started this thread. I have to say that I have been happy with my RSA'*, but then again I just like Goodyear. I can probably get 60K out of them if I run them as far as they will go. I can't complain about that. I've never noticed any traction problems with them, plus I think they just look good on the car. The cost to replace 4 235/55/17 was $141 each. Total with balance, etc was $643...not too bad...but not cheap either! I am going to take a hard look at the Dunlop A2....costs about the same, and generally has very good reviews.

With new RSAs and a stock car the tires may have been acceptable, but a 40k and with my mods they are worthless
