I would like to know if 215/40/17 is the best fit for my car or 205/40/17. I need help because I keep hearing different things about these sizes. Also they say that with a 215..... tire I should use a 17x7.5 and with a 205.... I should use a 17x7

I NEED SOME HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i have a 17x7.5 rim wit 215/40/17's and i wish i got lower profile tires so i could lower it more. the tires just look to big IMO, but i bet its less bumpy than 205/40's. good luck

I've heard that using a 215/40/17 tire will rub on a lowered Integra. I am currently using a 205/40/17 on my 17x7.5 wheels.

yeah the 215's will rub in the rear WITHOUT lowering. only in the turns the outside edge will hit the inner fender liner. Im gonna put Eibach pro-kits on in a few weeks and we'll see what happens

The amount of rubbing that you will experience will depend on your rim and its offset as well as the amount you have lowered your car. I would recommend a 205 tire. If your offset is not matching factory you will experience rubbing problems because think about it you are adding a tire that is now 10mm wider than your stock tire. and a rim that is 2in wider (Maybe 1in wider, can't remember is stock GSR wheel is 15x5 or 15x6).
