Ya I know "here we go again":banghead::banghead: But really I've searched everywhere in this forum that I can and have not seen this particular issue addressed, so any advise would be helpful. I have a 2006 standard V6 STS RWD, I have factory Mich's 235/50-17 all 4 corners, need rubber and I'm sold on the conti's DW's (south florida so I don't need snow tires :sneaky:) But my issue is go back to the 235's or go to 255's all around? dont care about cost, don't want staggered, I know the ride might be a little rougher, but I was looking at 20" wheels prior, so a little bumpy is ok. I really don't trust the online tech people, their job is to sell tires, so if anyone is running this size all around let me know what you think? thanks

I think it is six of one and a half dozen of the other or shall I say it's a matter of personal preference of those two sizes since they both will work.:2thumbs:

Wisconsinites say: "It's a horse apeice." How much more do the 255's cost?
