17x1?

17x35?

17x6.5?

How wide is the wheel? What is the offset? Why didn't you post in the wheel fitment thread?

offset without rim width is not enough data.

Thus cars have rims. Thanks for attempting to clarify something that nobody else was confused about, Scott.

The point of the question is that there's more to wheel size than just diameter and offset. You have to know the width in order to make any sense of the offset. I posted the link to Tire Rack's site because the information is all there - their site tells you the Sparco Assetto wheels will fit with recommended 225/45-17s. If 225/45s will fit, so will 215/45s. I don't know of anyone other than Tire Rack that sells the Sparco wheels, so if you had just gone to the only dealer's website you would have found your answer.
