I'm going to get Nitto tires tomorrow and was wanting some thoughts on tire sizes. Can I run 275's all the way around on my stock Cobra rims? Or would 255's be better? I like to take corners :) so I don't know if the 275's would have to much of a bulge in the side wall? Any thoughts??

Yeah, I ordered the 255/45 Nitto. I plan on getting some new wheels eventually, with 10.5 in the back! Then ill get 275's or bigger for the back! Thanks

The standard size for 17x10.5 is a 315. I'd go with 295-305 if you really take corners like you're implying. Besides, if you have stock suspension, you'll feel roll more than you would feel breaking traction with that size on the back.

Thanks! I was just wanting to know the biggest tire I could put on my stock cobra rims. I think the 97 cobra's are 17*8.
