Question from a complete Newb

Just got my black '07 ZX4 about a month ago. Absolutely love the car, absolutely hate the stock 15x6 steels w/ ultra fancy hubcaps. Needless to say, a wheel upgrade is first on the list.

Now, I know this is probably a stupid question, but here goes...

I want to upgrade to a set of SVT 5 spoke 17X7's. With the recommended tire size installed on this wheel, will I be able to bolt-on directly with no other modifications?

Again, sorry if this is idiotic question!

stock SVT tire size is 215-45-17, but apparently, the 205-45-17 size is closer to the stock wheel size. I highly sggest going 215-45-17's though as it will directly fit. I am running 215-45 with a 1.5 inch drop with no issues at all.

Although, that is usually when we are talking about the SES/ST 16 inch wheels. Use this link and you can see what your spedometer will be off by. I just guessed you had 195-65-15. I am not at all familiar with the 15 inch wheels.
