if you can , get 255/50-17
with the 255/50-17 size you will love the way your car looks and handles.
i have 255'* on my car and GM should have offerd these as a performance tire option.

Oh god I hate Michelin Energy MXV4'*...so overpriced, they ride harsh, their belts slip, did a number on my rear brakes because of a stupid belt.

Worst tires I've ever had on a car...period.

The only Michelins I would ever want are the F1s.

Michelin MXV4'* are garbage. My dad'* '02 Kia Optima came with those on it. Very bad tire in the winter, ride rough, and as Jim said, the belts slip. My dad'* had broken belts in all of his at 30k.
