Default So whats the word on 225-50's on factory rims?

So is it a bad idea? To much bulge? Loose turn-in response? Or does everything work out ok, and better than the factory 205-55's?

I'm tossing around the idea of keeping my 05 wheels and just slapping better tires on. In case my 05's dont sell on ebay tomarrow.

Any body running this size possibly give some input? Or even pix??

Thanx everybody.

Lose some turn in, really depends on the tire/sidewall. Try 215's. Don't worry about the ratio change. All tire's heights are different anyway (I didn't believe it either). You can get a 215 that within 1% of 205 55.
