What WIDTH of 17 inch wheels and TIRE SIZE for 1999 Acura Integra

Any of you guys out there running 17 inch wheels on 94-01 INTEGRA?

Im trying to decide if I should go with a 17x8 wheel with a 215/40r17 tire...

or a 17x7 with a 205/40r17 tire... or something else?

The car is on stock JDM ITR suspension and currently runs stock 205/50r16 on stock wheels... I prefer no rubbing and won't roll my fenders or anything like that.

Ideas?

17 is too big. 16 is the largest you can run on this chassis without looking silly.

with that said an 8" rim is wide enough to run a 205/45 with a bit of a stretch, 205/50 if you want a little more meat or a 215/45 if you want the tire to fit a little more aggressive looking

as goes for offset, with a good roll and 2ish degrees of camber you can get away with +25 offset.

if you are looking for a safer route with a less aggressive stance a +35 offset is more ideal

if you dont wanna roll the fenders (bad idea) you will need at lest a +35 offset with an 8" wheel

if you wanna run a 7" you can get away with a +25 offset wheel without a roll im sure

plz for the love of jebus do not run a 17" wheel.

Thanks for the input. Sounds like 16 is the call. So on a 16" wheel going 215/45 shouldn't rub the insides of the fender wells.

probably going for a 35 offset

shouldnt.. but that depends on how low, suspension firmness and camber

a light roll is not a bad idea either way though

205/40/17 will work, be sure the offset of the wheel is correct +40 is safe so the wheels don't hit your fender when you lower it or hit a bump.
