Default New rims unsure on tire size need help!!!

Alright fellow nasioc-ers I am going to get my new rims within a couple of days they are Rota Grids 17x7.5

What has thrown me for a loop is what size tires do I buy??? I want a "low profile" tire but I don't wanna be rollin on rubber bands, and I still wanna mash threw corners/have performance. What size/brand/model of tires would you buy???

lets say you had 600 bucks to spend?

Thanks for your help,

-Austin

It depends. Are you looking for summer only tires or all seasons?

I'd say something all season because I live in Oregon so there is a lot of rain.

Many summer only tires are excellent in the rain, often better than all-seasons.
The real question is will you see snow or prolonged temps less than 35 degrees or so?

no prolonged 35 or less degree weather, maybe a week or two out of a year, I'm hoping to stay under 3-400 installed because I also will need to do an alignment and so forth.
