Default 200 ?

i want to replace my stock 190/50 r17 with a 200mm tire. should i find a different size sidewall or are they standard? i am allready aware of the setbacks involved but i'm no knee dragger anyway.

Would not recommend it. It will affect the handling and other issues. Stay with the stock width.

A 200mm tire is a much wider tire than your OEM tire. Trust me, leave it as is--I am speaking from experience.
