Burnouts don't cup tires, they smooth the cupping back out. Says experience..lol

225/50/17 will be a considerably smaller tire size and may look bad and/or throw off your speedometer rating.

225 is the section width of the tire (not the tread width) and if I remember correctly, 50 is the depth of the tire as a percentage of the section width. If a 235/55/17 is stock, I would go to a 225/60/17 as a more narrow replacement.
