Default Tire size?

What is the the best tire size to run on pony rims? Also can someone recomend me a good all season tire?

Ya on most tire sales place they say 225/55/16 and some people say 245 so its confusing? And not many tires come in 245/50/16.

With ponies, you are better off having the same size all around for up to 245. That way you can rotate to ensure even wear. Past 245 up front, you will have rubbing issues.

I don't know if these are available in that size or not but check the BFG KDWS or Continental Extreme contact, both pretty good tires.
