Re: Recommended Tire size & Offsets!

I just bought some new wheels 114.3 x 4 for my 96' prelude.

Want to know if I can fit the 235 40 17 on there? It's 2.14% larger so 1.5mph off I guess if I'm going 70 I'm actually going 71.5mph. These wheels I got are 17" x 8" and the 225's are fine width wise, I think a 235 would work...? Just need 235 40 17... Thoughts on fitting the 235 on a 8" wide wheel? It said it's just an inch wider than the wheel I think it may work...

Otherwise 215 40 17 seem Ideal... Just 0.49% smaller than stock so I'll be doing 69.65mph at 70mph on the speedo...

Price wise I can probably just maybe get 4x 235 40 17s for maybe 280 to 300. Though 4x 215 40 17s are in the 250 range so I'm more prone to spending less cash. What are things to look for to get a very tough long lasting tire?

420AA appears to be the best in this size. I do like the idea of the tire hanging off the edge to minimize wheel grinding in the case of a curb incident. I think the 215 won't provide much protection.
