The difference is going to be minimal. Less than a 1mph difference at 65mph. The stock speedo doesn't have the accuracy or the resolution for that to make any difference in the world.

They don't put 225/255 on non-staggered wheels, they put 225/245 on non-staggered wheels. 225/245 on an 8" wheel are within manufacturer specs.

What size are the tires? 255/275 doesn't tell you the diameter of the tire. Although even a 255/30 is big for the front of the car; I'd be suspicious as well.

That is as good a reason as any, the Bridgestones are still good tires.

Interesting. I wonder why they made that change since in the new configuration the adjustment bolts are harder to get to. Glad I got the old blue ones! :)

Good update!

I'm also in the 17" wheel camp by choice. Did you weigh the BBS wheels yourself to get the 17lb weight?
