Will 205-40-17 work on my 5th Gen?

I'm looking at buying a used set of 05-06 Rsx types S rims 17x7 that have 205-40-17 tires. I have a form and function coilover kit. Dropped almost 2in with the oem lip kit. Will this size tire give me issues? I didnt' see it on the Recommended tire size/offset sticky...... Thanks for any help :)

According to the tire rack , a 40 series tire will be to small for your car.

They will be fine, I have the same setup and same wheels except my tires are 215/45/17. If your question is will they fit then the answer is yes.

That size tire will be perfectly fine. I have this on both of my cars. I'm actually needing to get some 215/40's for my rsx-s wheels though

Re: Will 205-40-17 work on my 5th Gen?

I called my local tire shop and they said the tire is too small for my car. Anything I need to worry about?

Yes : Your abs,engine ecu, speedometer , and overall suspension tunning is set up for a tire that turns roughly 862 revs/mile . You need to go to the tire rack and see how many revs/mile your tire makes compared to a stock configuration and then make a judgment call.

note : reference tire= 205-50-r16 Michlen Pilot Exalto A/S

Re: Will 205-40-17 work on my 5th Gen?

if your car is as low as mine, a 40 series works perfect, now if you're stock height, then I'd advise getting a bigger tire to help fill in the wheel gap.

Re: Will 205-40-17 work on my 5th Gen?

go as wide as you can get!!! :)
but if i were you i'd use the tires up on your rsx wheels first

i have 17x7's and am putting 225 BFG's in the summer.
my car's not lowered so it'll fit...

&about the tires fitting,here's a site that might help you:

Re: Will 205-40-17 work on my 5th Gen?

205/40/17 will work but your ride quality will be a little harsher due to the reduced profile. Personally I go for 215/45/17.

Re: Will 205-40-17 work on my 5th Gen?

215/40's for the extra amount of contact patch, I've personally rocked both and gotta say 215 is wayy more grippy than 205's. 40 will have be the middle number if you're dropped enough, otherwise you'll rub unbelievably bad on 17's to the point of not being able to drive the car. (personal experience on Eibach Sportlines and 215/45/zr17's)

Re: Will 205-40-17 work on my 5th Gen?

my vote is on the 45's. i had very low profiles on my lude then i switched to the ones i have now and it is amazing the difference it makes. you will get less flats from pot holes as well:)

that looks sick.. i've seen them pix in another thread.. and u could easily go even wider on ur tires..even 225 wouldn't be too wide for ur rims bro.

for the OP... i had 205/35 wrapped on 17" BBS on my lude.. recently switched over to 215/45 on 17" RSX type S rims.. BIG difference and really comfortable! :))) of course same suspension (Tokico adj. w/ eibach springs).. tires made a huge diff.

Re: Will 205-40-17 work on my 5th Gen?

instead of telling you what you want to hear, i'm just gonna give you the facts and let you decide from there since i don't know what you want to hear.

the wider you go the better the handling will be. given that you keep the diameter of the tire as close as you can to the stock diameter. a taller tire will also improve handling to some degree.

even for being lowered 2", 225/40/17 will fit. and are almost identical in diameter to stock (1 less revolution/mile). 215/45/17 is slightly larger (19 less revs/mile than stock). 205/40/17 is about 22 MORE revs/mile. not only is that a bit excessive, but your mileage will count about 2.6% faster then you really go.. meaning, for every 100 miles you really travel, your odometer will count 102.6. which doesn't sound like a lot, but for every 1000 miles, your odometer will read 1,026 miles. for every 10k, 10,260.. starts to really ad up. 100k, 102,600. you are also traveling at a slower rate then what your speedometer reads. at 60, you'll be really traveling 58.5.

with a larger tire, your mileage will count slower and your speedometer will read slower then you're really going. (could potentially lead to being pulled over though) larger/wider tires will also, like i said, increase your handling capabilities.

Beaker...now by larger do you mean higher sidewall or higher overall tire?

overall tire. the size of the rim doesn't effect the milage, but the weight of the rim will change gas milage and your acceleration too.

Re: Will 205-40-17 work on my 5th Gen?

well given that the rim stays the same size, a bigger side wall would yield a larger diameter tire. but yeah, i meant the overall size (height) of the tire.

Re: Will 205-40-17 work on my 5th Gen?

It seems to me that people are given some confusing advise and here is why I think it so.You need to keep in mind that their are three types of people given advise on tire and wheel sizes and each person as is or hers sense of priority of whats most important.

1:Their is the guy thats only concerned with appearances. If the wheel fits in the wheel well, got the right bolt pattering,does not rub against anything , and will work well enough to get him to the next car show then he is happy.

2: Their is the guy who's priority is functionally. These people, among other things, are concerned with the tire having close to the correct revs/mile so as not detune screw up his ABS and engine ecu tunning ,how the tire effects the cars gearing, and if the tire is larger then the existing one, just how long if at all will it take to get to the operating temperature needed to give the tire a grip on the road.An example of a driver who puts functionality first are people I used to see who drove the CRX at auto cross events with 205's in the front and 165's in the back. It may have looked retarded but a win is a win.

3: Then theirs the guy like me that wants a balance between functionality and appearance.With the stock SH rims I get:

a: a 50 series tire thats a low enough profile not to have a lot of flex yet tall enough that after 11 years their are not to many wheel nicks of other damage.
b:The tire size is such that the tire gets to proper operating temperature with in a reasonable amount of time as long as the outside tempt. is above about 40 degrees.
c:The tire width has a good balance between tire grip an rolling resistance. Having a 4 cyl engined moving a 3000 lb car means this must be a consideration for most people.

In conclusion each person has to determine whats important to them and then go from their.

i guess thats a good point.. i mean the stock OEM rims are made that certain size for a reason..im sure they put lots of thought into the best size for the car.. so its probably best to keep as close to stock as possible for best results?

Works just fine for mine. I have +40 offset wheels with that same tire with a 2" drop...
