Ok, i currently have 275/60/17 Kumho ECSTA STX Tires.

its a 30" tire . 29.8 to be exact.

I want a smaller tire, for several reasons.

1.Lower
2.Not so much to turn.
3.Think it will look better.

Now, the tire i want is the same tire. Kumho's, they ****** rock.

the size is 255/50/17 About a 27" tire, im wondering if that woulod look funny.

How big was stock again? 28"?
