You can go up or down a size from stock with no problem, 200/50/17 or 180/55/17. I went with a 190/55/17 for faster turn in but still having the grip of the big 190 tire best of both worlds but they are more expensive. If you went with a 180 you would have faster turn in on the corners but you would "loose" some grip. If you not racing you will be fine. If you went with a 200 rear turn in would be slower they are only good for drag racing
