Your NASIOC Administrator 08 OEM Wheel

Anyone tired changing their tire size on the 08 OEM Silver Wheels?

I am looking to change mine to 225/45/17 (stock 205/50/17)

Is this possible, will they fit?

I know it will slow my car down 0.4% but other than that will it help or hurt my car?

I had 235/45r17 Kumho Ecsta XS'es on mine and they came pretty close to the spring perches, but fit.

A thicker tire, like a Star Spec might rub some.

I'll be going to 245/40r17's soon.

The 09's run the 225's, it works great.

I just came across this on a google search.

Does anyone know if this wheel/tire (225/45 17) combo will fit on an 03' wagon?
