Default pic request: 215/45 on a rota on a wagon

hi, y'all.
does anyone have a pic (from the rear and rear corner of the wagon) of a wagon with 215/45/17 tire on a rota wheel (obviously 17x7.5")? stock suspension? subydude? luke?

could you tell me the tire that's on there? a lot of 215 tires have widths that are narrower than the rim. and tread width also varies quite a bit (from 7.2 to 8.3"). i just want to make sure the 215 tire doesn't look too small on the rota wheel. and i don't want 225's due possible rubbing, as we all know that debate! and no, don't want to "roll" fenders.

**keep in mind the outer width dimension of the rota 7.5" width is 8.5".

thanks.

I use 215/45/17 Sumitomo HTR Z 2s on my Rotas. No rubbing at all, ever and I'm lowered on Eibach Pro Kits and AGXs. 215s fit 7.5" wheels perfectly fine, IMO.

p.s. I have pics, but no host. Email me if you want some pics.

Thanks, Joe. It's there, now. Some of the pics with gold SDRs, some with flat black Actions.

Any chance of getting some Tarmac 2s in 4x108, +45mm, Joe?

The same as in all the pics ~1.25" via Eibach Pro Kit springs.
