Why would you want to go narrower, Vince? Are these snow tires? Is this going on a 6 or something else? 205/50R17 is borderline for the 6 and I wouldn't really recommend it.

Maybe he ran across this magazine article: All Toyos; all 205s. :)

I can understand looking for alternatives to 215/50R17s: there are just not that many choices in "our" size. But, like you, I cannot understand why, in a 205, he would be looking at a 50 series tire instead of a 55 series tire. There are some really good 205/55R17s out there; in fact, I bought some myself this month [Yokohama Advan Sports] for our Mazda6 wagon.
