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.

Good update!

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