225/45/17 on 1992 Prelude

Would a set of 4 225/45/17 tires fit on my 1992 Honda Prelude?
I'm needing to know I recently bought a pair of brand new 17 inch rims for my Prelude but the only tires my repair shop has is some 225/45/17 they would fit my rims but IDK if this will rub anything. I know I can use 205/40/17 and 215/45/17 but he don't have any.

Actually, the perfect 17" tire for a 4G is a 215/40/17, it's almost exactly the same diameter as the stock 205/55/16 and fits pretty nicely under the fenders. A 225/45/17 is miles too big. At stock ride height you might get away without it rubbing, it depends on what size/offset wheels you have. It will throw your speedo out by about 5% too.

Look at this though Recommended Tire size & Offsets! IDK why everyone seems to miss this one, it's stickied under stance.

I guess this is an honor of sorts. Op knows pz folks know the score.

It's too easy to just pop up a new thread asking the same questions over and over. This doesn't seem to be a new thing though. I reckon some folks join, do an occasional post here in there, then out of the blue figure those folks at xyz forum will know, pop up their enquiry without looking around first. Frankly the more folks do that the more difficult it makes it for word searching later.
It seems long ago stickies were created to avoid the same old enquiry as well as help those who help them selves.

Every time I go to the DIY section I see the message that says (paraphrasing) "hey you, yeah you! Don't make a new thread until you're certain there isn't one already."

Me? I always word search by title before starting a new one. Like you say Taz, nearly all the info most people seek is already here.

Don't know about your country, but here in America you can go to nearly any shopping mall and tell what wheel/tire combos work (and many that don't but are on the car anyway)...so it aint like this is a new phenomenon or something.

imo wide tires look sexy as long as the rims are wide enough. I have 225/50 on mine. the right offset and height you wont rub.

Seriously...it's takes a lot of time and research as well. Figure minimum 5 years...and that's assuming you have the dough. To do a total ground up resto-mod like Ferdie is a HUGE under taking.
If you look at the build threads of many here you'll see they were started anywhere from 06 (when pz started) to 08/09-is, maybe 010...
