What should I do? New tires? or should I get new rims? (17")

I have a GT with GTS 15" rims... I like them! happywink

Any suggestion???

IMO I'd upgrade to a bigger & nicer wheel & tire package. You can get those from www.wheelmax.com www.victoriatire.com for as low as $600 shipped.

perfect time to upgrade since you need new tires anyway. I'd go 17's. Nice compromise between size & Performance.

Well instead of starting a new thread, I gotta question fellas.I found the rims I want but now I need to know what the best tire size is to get. The price varys on this package based on tire size.

17x7
$1099 (205/40/17)
$1150 (225/45/17)
$1199 (235/45/17)
