question about 17x7's

For anyone running 17x7 rims on a sedan. what size tire should you run with that? I figured the same size tire as the SVTF (I used to have an 03) would work since the rim is the same size. 215/45R17. Is that correct?

Cool. Anyone else? I would think 215's would fit fine too.

215's fit fine on my SVT, is the wheel well that much tighter on a sedan?

I currently have 215's that came stock on my SES model on 17" x 7".
So those are fine.

Yes I am going to lower it and judging by your pics, I better get 205's instead of 215's. I like a lil room.

it all depends on your offset, i cant run anything bigger than a 205/40/17 on my 17x7's. mostly b/c the offset is wrong and i have the prokits on there.
