Can anyone let me know what size of a tire I can upgrade to? I know stock is 255/50/17. Will a 275/50/17 work? Or is that too wide?:confused:
Thanks all for your help!

275/40-17 is another popular size, and more widely available than oem size. It is about an inch shorter though, so unless you're lowered, it's not going to look right.

people have gone 285/40/17's on all four with no problems, but I would go 285/40/17 in the back with 255/45/17's upfront.

Can you make u turns in the front with those bad boys?? wow!!:eek:

285's up front pose no problem. The stock wheels hit the swaybar at full wheel lock- with or without 285's. The tires won't rub.

275/45 would be perfect match, but no one makes them that size.

You will be fine. I have 275/50/ZR17 on the back and 255/50/ZR17 on the front rides great on stock suspension.
