17" SVT rims on ZX5

Would there be any issue (other than speedometer calibration) with installing 17" SVT rims on my ZX5?

There shouldn't be a problem with your speedometer calibration with the correct size tires either.

use 215/45R17 tires and you spedometer will be perfect as the rolling diameter will be the same as your original tires

currently I have P215 50 R16 tires on it, the SVT rims have P215 45 R17 tires on them - I just searched and they should be the same diameter, so I won't have to worry about the speedo either - thanks!

Moved to the Wheels & Tires section.

SVT wheels work just fine....

I use that type & tire size as well.
