    215/50/17 on PT GT rims?

    Basically, we have 205/50/17 on there now, but I have a chance to get 4 tires for the price of 1.5, but they are the slightly wider size. I would think this wouldnt be an issue, as its not on the k-car TMs, but I dunno about these PTs. I'll go over to one of their forums if need be, but figured Id ask here first.

    Its a little wide for a stock rim... your steering response will be a bit sloppy and your speed sensor will read a little slower than you are really going.

    thanks mike - I'll have to just keep an eye out for the correct size.
