WTB: 17" tires.

im looking for a set of new to slightly used tires for 17" rims. im running sportlin springs right now so i have doubts of the stock 17" (215/45/17) tires fitting well. i was leaning towards maybe 215/40, or 205/45 bc they seem most applicable. lemme know what you guys have at the moment

True, I haven't personally had any problems when I ran mine though. I didn't rub on my Sportlines either.

^^noted. i drive on some rough roads from time to time so thats something i want to avoid. i used that tire size calculator thing in the sticky and they should come to about the same diameter. Spyder, what tire did you run on ur sportlines the 205/45?
