Default Tire time, this is my last tire question, I promise

Ok so I've narrowed it down to this tire:
http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires....o+M%26S#Survey

I read all the reviews from bonneville owners and they all say that this tire shows how bad the stock goodyears really are. They are cheaper than the stock tires and they have a good wear rating. It'* air-tight, they seem too good to be true but they aren't.

So please speak up if you have them but what I really need to know is what size I should get. I think I read somewhere that there is a better size to get than the stock setup (235/55 17)

I'm running your stock size on my 97. Got gee...dunno on them..but plenty. A trip to WCBF (close to 8,000 miles) tons of ripping around on them.

I'm happy and they perform uh.. good in the rain. (See In Motion for the vid were you can HEAR the rain)

Good tires, but as mentioned, they give up some wear for grip..

the rsa'* on my car have 30k on them and already have cracks and dry-rotting. These pirellis have pretty good wear ratings compared to the goodyears, I'm going to go ahead and order them.
