Great to read this! At least we know we should have no issues going 10-25K over the recommended service interval. I may go to 250K before my next timing belt service.

I assume the wheels are already on your car... If so, then for 17x9, 235/45r17 should work. Many run 245/40r17 as well for a square fit. Some run 255 if you want the meaty tire look.

What matters...
