245 50 17...

I know that is a weird size but this is what I run on my LSC.

Anyway, I just checked TireRack and there are now 8 tires listed in that size. With prices ranging from $104 for the General Exclaim UHP to $298 for the Pirelli P-Zero's. (But some are winter tires)

245 50 17:
Diameter: 26.8"
Section: 10"
Rim Range: 7" - 8.5"

Just thought I would share.

97 Lincoln Mark VIII LSC (Chip'd, 3.73 T/L... so far... )
97 Ford Aspire (Slow, but getting 36 mpg (f'n Ethenol!! )
84 F250 Dually w/6.9L Diesel (7.3L IDI pending)
73 Mercury Cougar Convertible w/351C 4V (Partially Restored)
69 F100 LWB w/460 Engine
76 Glastron Carlson 23' Jet Boat w/460 CJ Engine

That is a perfect size for MN12 and FN10 cars, problem in the past has been limited availability for good tires at a reasonable price. The General Exclaim UHP is a very good value.

What about 255/50/17? Will they fit nicely to 1.5" lowered car?

I just thought for getting that size...

Any idea what is the size of 17" SVT wheels? Will 255 fit that wheel?

Check eBay. That size is standard on certain Honda's that people like to put bigger wheels on, so they often sell the originals on eBay. I found a literally brand new set of Michelins that size for $40 total, plus shipping! They're replacing my almost worn-out BFG's later this summer.
