Time for new rubber, don't have enough dough for new rims. What's the widest tire I can fit on stock 17's?

You're better off buying a better tire at the right width than a wider tire.

I'm not sure what size the rims on the S197s are, if they're 8" I wouldn't go over a 255 (others will say 275), if they're 9" I wouldn't go over 275 (others will say 305 or 315, depending on the tire).

the 17s are 8'. I had dr's on my 17s that were 275/40/17s but i did not use those tires for a DD. like he said, 245s really is the biggest I personally would do but i think some guys are doing 255s.
