Default What size tires do you run?

What size tires do you run ( depending one wheel size of course) ? I have stock 16" Bridgestone Potenza 950'* on now, but I am thinking of moving to 17" with a 235/55/17.

I'm not sure what you can fit under that black beast, Cowboy. We can go up to 245 with no modifications, 255 with slight mods.

I wouldn't go more than 17" for performance/handling/launching reasons.

i run the stock size (225/60R16)
i drive 100+ miles a day....need a good quality touring tire. i believe this new set i got has a treadwear rating of 620. The highest I've ever seen was a toyo with 700! (but they were double the price)

The 235 55 R 17 tires are standard on my my car.
PontiacDad has just ordered some 255 45 ZR 17 tires for his stock 17 x 7.5" rims that are supposed to fit and are the same overall diameter as the stock 235'*

225/60/16 Kelly Springfield Performers. Had a set on my 454/SS truck, loved them, so put them on my Bonny. I think a nice all year tire for the price.
