    probably because they were stock size.

Unless you're drag racing, you don't want skinny ass tires in the front.
    So you are saying the stock size 245/50-16's are skinny ass tires??? I think you missed the point. But I expected that.

    I knew you missed the point as soon as you mentioned 30 yr old tires in a thread about a 4 gen camaro SS. Going from his stock size down to 245's will negatively affect the handling of the vehicle unless he's putting on racing tires, which he's not; usually that's not the effect people want when investing in new wheels and tires. And yes, when talking about handling 245's are skinny ass tires on our car. Don't you have an AARP meeting to go to

    my z came with 245/50-16s. upgrading to 245/45-17s up front along with sfcs etc. was a dramatic improvement. could it handle bigger? yes. would there an improvement in handling? probably. does the car drive like" god i wish this car would handle better"? no. does everybody have to have the biggest tires and wheels they can squeeze on? no. would every driver notice a noticable difference between 245/45 and 275/40 if youre not thrashing it in the twisties or autocrossing? no. if someone wants to put 245s on their car is that ok? yes. if someone likes 275s better and puts them on their car is that ok? yes. there, no more problem.

    some will do that. but time does bring more experiences and sometimes your outlook can be changed by them.

    Didn't miss the point at all, it was meant toward your comment that 245's suck for handling. A statement that is extremely inaccurate and misleading.
    245's being skinny is only a matter of opinion. And just because people invest in new wheels and tires does not mean they want something wide,,,, Speak for yourself.
    I mentioned nothing of age or even implied anything about being smarter,,,,so don't get your panties in a twist there,,,,scooter
