I'm running Continental ExtremeContact Sport 235/45/17 on a 17x8 wheels which are 5.5lbs lighter than the stock wheels. Loving it, the tires are a bit pricier but so worth it. Unsprung weight for the win! BTW the sport is the updated DW tire. For the street and light track/autox use they are a great tire.
