    New tires

    Well i've decided just to get some new tires and dump some cash into the exhaust instead of getting rims, So i want a decent performance/all season(just rain basically) tire to go on my stock rim which is 17x9 i believe? as of now it has 245/45/17 Sound right? should i go down to a 40 series? and how wide can i go? 265 or so?

    17x9" wheel, I would go with a 275/40/17.

    I really like the BFG KDW's.

    Stick with the 245/50/16's in that case.
    Unless you can swing some wheels as well.
