Hey guys,

I would need new tires for my new baby :)

So currently I have 225/50/17 tires, and my question is....do I need to stick with 225/50/17 or I can look for maybe 225/45/17 also?
Btw, I am located in Serbia, so not much snow here :)

Thanks

In a previous role dealing with wheels and tyres, I would say stick with 225/50/17. The non CC, runs a 225/45/17, but the extra 5% profile is there to compliment the ride and off road capability of the CC.The larger sidewall absorbs bumps and rough terrain better than the 45's. Be aware the speedo would be out if you change to a smaller profile, and could possibly cause you insurance issues in the event of a claim... any excuse not to pay
