Rim: Work Emotion 17x8, +47 offset(I think)
Tire: Ecsta Supra 235/45/17
Suspension: Eibach Pro + AGX Adjustables

225 is not going to fit on a 17x8 wheel is it? There are already 235/40 on them, without any problems I just want to know if 235/45 is pushing it because 40 is to low-profile in my opinion.

and Ecsta supras have been nothing but good to me for 3 summers now on Prodrive P1s...

235/45's will kill your acceleration as tehy are too tall.....and if you put some GOOD tires on the car, you may just realize how completely ****ty those damn POS tires that you 'like' are......REALLY.

Just ask Luke....he'll tell ya how bad they suck.

Well I can't be the only one who 'likes' them as they are best sellers on tire rack, and 9 out of 10 reviews are nothing but praise for them in every category and on multiple cars. I've never had a single problem, and for the price you can't go wrong.

How much of an acceleration problem can a size 45 cause? I am on 225/45 at the moment, and I noticed no change when I switched over from my stock rims & tires, and those had a size 55.

Alright, forget about the brand of tire. I just wanna get some more info about the size before I throw down $400 on the tires. The previous guy had 235/40 on them, but was running coilovers on the car. I'll go for 235/40 but does anyone have an idea if its going to cause problems with my small drop? My optimal situation would be to fill in the fender as much as possible, even if the tire stuck out a bit I wouldn't mind, I just don't want anything to rub, and I don't want to roll any fenders.

....225/45's are fine on 17x8's and are well within the acceptable range for that size of wheel. In fact, I have 225/45/17 PZeros mounted on my 17x8's and the tire fits flush with the rim (there's even enough hanging over to provide a bit of protection against curb rash).
