255/50/17 is closer to the original tire size and won't throw off the speedo as much, but it is tall and wide and requires clearance of the excess from the upper control arm ball joint. Some people are afraid of doing this. However either way I'm sure you'll be happy with the wider tires. So what brand and model did you choose?
