Anyone running 255/55/16's?

Was messing around on tirerack and found some 255/55/16 tires that interested me. The overall diameter is 27" compared to our stock 26.9" and fit on a 7" rim. Not that big of a selection but the prices weren't bad. Only thing was the better brands were listed as sport truck tires but does that really matter? I know that when teh time comes for new tires I want something wider but want to keep my speedo accurate. If this doesn't seem viable I will go with 235/60's when the time comes but that won't be for a while. Just curious about this now so I know for later. Here is a link to one of the tires.


Edit: 255/55/16's
