    What are the benefits of getting 255s in tire size rather than the usual 265,275,285?

    You can fit a tall skinny tire more easily than a wide tire. Also, narrow tires will generally get better fuel economy.

    One benefit I've seen is those wanting a 33ish" tall tire (255/85) that is narrower to help avoid rubbing issues. Not speaking from experience, though, I've never run that size personally.

    Most likely I’m going to end up going to Discount tire to look at their tires and get a better idea of what I want. Probably sticking with 265/70/17s for now. Just need to figure out what tires I really want lol
