Shouldn't this be in general? I think it would get alot more attention there.
Sorry I cannot offer advise on the subject myself.

my cars inactive, not being driven.

wont be driven until new tires are purchased.

looks like most people are saying 255, but why? im assuming it will give me problems if i wana lower it an inch or 2 but i plan on modding alot so i guess itll be okay.

If you are afraid its going to cause problems when/if you lower, then get 245s.

But 255'* give an impressive stance. Plus its awesome to say, yep...I got 255'*

its all depend what youre looking for .245 will have a lower weight and be shorter that equal to better acceleration 255 better cornering better look and don"t forget 1 inches lower tire will lower the car only half a inches
