205/50ZR17 will it rub??

Looking at some Sumitomo HTRZ but they don't come in 215/45/17 or 205/45/17. They only come in 205/50/17. I am dropped with the prokit (.75 inch from stock svt). Will these rub since they seem to have a bigger diameter, also will it throw of my speedo?

Fast is relative.

i dont think they will rub. I have 205/45 on a 2" drop and im ok. you have only a 1.5" drop so I dont see any problems. I wouldnt worry about the speedo either.

It will probably affect your speedometer by about 1-2mph at the most. Not enough to really worry about unless you're going through a really small town that counts on revenue from speeding tickets. Yes, I have gotten a ticket for going 3mph over the limit lol
