Default Pirelli PZero M+S 225/50/16 (wait) or 205/55/16 (NOW)?

I'm realy stuck on purchasing the Pirelli P Zero Nero M+S 225/50/16 but it seems that tirerack has them on backorder with no ETA on them.

So my questions is should I just bite the bullet and purchase the 205/55/16 or should I wait it out and purchase the 225/50/16.

yeah I'd order somewhere else if they'd offer the same price or at least close to the same price...

Do you guys know anywhere else that sell the Pirelli's for the similar price that tirerack is offering?

I'm now considering the Toyo Proxes 4 but i would much rather get the Pirelli's

You won't go wrong with either one.
It is really hard to decide between Proxes4 and Zero Nero. They both are excellent All seaon tires. (I choose PZero Nero simply beacuse they are the official tires for SRT)

i want to get the pzero m&s for my 2002 wrx wagon with stock rims. stock tires are 205/55/16, im wondering if i should stick with stock size or could i go to 215/55/16 or even 215/50/16? the thinner tire wall would reduce flex and better handling ya?

i went from the stock bridgestone re92 205/55/16 to a 225/40/16 and there is a huge difference in steering response and such

Ive got the PZero's on my 2000 2.5RS and they are amazing. I run summer tires during the summer being in New England, and the PZeros the rest of the year. They are really great tires, at a great price and I highly reccomend them.

like the title says, you should get a 225-50-16 if you want wider. reason being its closer to stock diameter. 215-50 is a bit small and 215-55 is a bit big. besides. 225 is wider anyway!
