will this look funny?

I am going to be getting rsx wheels and i will need new tires for them. I read in the sticky that the recommended size is 215/40/17. This will make it 1.25% off. Will it look funny going onto my 5th gen? it is at stock height. My other option was 205/45/17.

thanks for the input!

Brad

Re: will this look funny?

go 45 series like everyone else says.

andysautosports.com has a little program that will show you what your car would look like with different size tires. i am sure other websites have that program too, i just don't know the names off the top of my head.

Re: will this look funny?

You'll rub all around with the 45's. Personal experience with that, only thing that works is 40 for 17's.

Re: will this look funny?

45's is perfect if your ride isn't really low. Like that black prelude looks sweet with that tire size.Reguardless of what anyone say that picture is a GOOD reference.Good luck with your choice.
