Tires

I'll start with: NEVER EVER use Mastercraft tires.

Its time to get me some new tires. I'm tired of dealing with the ones I have. They have plenty of tread and still have little to no grip. ESPECIALLY in the rain (my wife just f***ing ran over a curb because the brakes locked up, and they've slid out on me at a point where they definately shouldn't have).

That being said, I have the stock wheel, so I need some tires that still have good/great grip in the rain that i can get in a 225/55-16 to 255/50-16 so that I don't have to go 5 mph around a turn so the front doesnt slide out on me.

You can go wider. 225's? That's weak. Even my cavalier has 255's! More rubber on the ground equals more traction but less fuel economy.

i believe 255 is the widest i can go in the back, and 235 in the front. stock tires, stock suspension atm. I want to go as wide as possible on my stock rims in the back (which like i said i believe i've heard is 255) but i want to make sure i stay well within my clearance on the fronts

Yeah that's pretty puny. Do you have any plans to upgrade the wheels in the future?

most definately.....when money allows...which hopefully will be sometime this year or with next years tax returns, i plan on 18x9, 18x10DD Bullits, with 235/245 front and 275-315 rear, depending on what performance replacements/upgrades i've done by that time

before i can get tires though i have some engine issues that need smothing out, and i plan to replace the heads and the entire exhaust as well before i get wheels and tires
