choosing tires for 17inch rims
I am shopping for tires to put on some 17in x 8in wheels. This guy at a tire shop suggested I get 205/40s yet I kind of want to go with 225/45s. Does anyone have an opinion on this? They are going on a 99 323i sedan.

im using 225/45/17 on front, 245/40/17 (yoko s drive) on the rear. installed H&R 10mm spacers all around, looks good. try sumitomo, good tire for the price.

Moved to W&T forum. Ask Gary@Tirerack.com.

205/40R17 is completely wrong. Stick with 225/45R17. Optional rear size up to 245/40R17.

225/45/17 is best.
