  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

235/55 R17's, much easier tire to find.

They are. They're amazing for the money, they're considered "performance luxury all seasons", plus Toyo is a high quality brand.

My shop sells them if you want to order a set of tires, they'll ship them to you.

Well...what's the stock tire size? The size indicated on the placard on the driver's side door jam.

Potentially. I know the speedometer on the Phoenix shows 5MPH faster than actual (Ex. 50MPH is actually 45MPH) because I have 14in rims and not stock 15in the tires are respectively smaller than stock. Since smaller wheels spin at a higher RPM, if your speedometer isn't adjusted accordingly it will think you are going faster than you actually are.

And the opposite will happen if you go bigger than the stock size.

DERP, re-read the first post.

Yes, the smaller height and overall diameter will spin faster, throwing off the speedo.

There's no advantage to running a smaller diameter than stock, stick with the stock tire size.
