Default Wheel question (II)

I asked about this in the newb forum, but I only included the wheel picture, not the site / specs.

This wheel:
http://www.wheeldude.com/catalog/pro...oducts_id=5636

Has 5x100 bolt dispersion, which should match my WRX (right?), but the picture shows the wheel with 4 bolt holes. Is that just a generic picture?

Ah ok thx. Also, will 235/40 R17 be an acceptably fitting tire? On Yokohama it read 8-9" range, but a pretty sharp guy on these forums told me to go w/ 235/40. Any opinions?

It's a generic picture as our Gun Metallic Grid pictures weren't the best, our web guy needs to shoot some new pictures and update that product page. If you do place an order through that page you will get the correct 17x7.5 5x100 wheel

I typically recommend a 225/45/17 tire for a 17x7.5 wheel however a 235/40/17 tire will still fit on the 17x7.5 wheel. 235/40/17 tires usually are best suited for 8" wide wheels, this tire size is a bit shorter than your stock rolling diameter so it will give you slightly quicker acceleration.

Ah, I see. Will the 235/40 have any issues/take a preformance hit with buldging, or is that pretty negligible?

Thanks,
