tire question

ok i know this is a dumb question.....i have the stock 225/55's on my v6 conv.
I'm looking for winter tires i found a good set on ebay...but there 225/50's will this make much of a difference? And does anyone know how wide can i go before i need to do peformance upgrades?

Re: tire question

that will throw off your speedometer a bit...you can go with as wide as will fit without doing performance upgrades if you want to.

Re: tire question

itll be a VERY slight speedo difference, you probably wont even notice it. maybe move up to a 235/50 to make up for the sidewall difference.

Re: tire question

dont mess around with the stock tire sizes on the 16 inch rims it wont matter. Just buy cheap tires and save up for some nice rims.
