I'm coming up to needing new tyres (again!).

I'm currently running 265/40/17's on 9.5" rims.

Would I notice much difference in terms of grip or looks if I dropped that down to 255/40/17's instead?

Cheers,
Ade.

255x40x17 is a better rotational match than 265x40x17 for the original tyre size (0.69% vs 1.96%). Doubt that you'd notice much grip-wise.

I'm currently running 255 section tyres on a 9.5" rim (18" mind). Personally I think that the rim is a little too wide for the tyre. Not terrible but it does make your rims more prone to kerbing.
