I Just Ordered A 200/50r17...room 2 Grow?

I Am Happy To Be Pulling The Original 190/55 R17 Qualifier Off And Chucking It! I Have Ordered A 200/50 R17 And Am Wondering If Anyone Else Has Made (or Attempted) This Swap. I Got A Great Deal On A Well Reviewed Tire, So It Won't Be The End Of The World....but, I Hope It Fits.

no i havent tried it on a track but from the few twisties i get around here cant complain. i always felt confident bringing it through turns w the 200. you notice the differance but its not bad at all. and as for launching i believe it performs better because you now have a bolder surface area on the ground.
