What size tyres on 17inch Alloys?

I know tyres get discussed a lot, but for interest, what tyres can fit on the GT multi-spoke 7J x 17 alloys? Standard is 215/45 R17, possible for any other variation?

Re: What size tyres on 17inch Alloys?

225 wide tyre is pushing it on an 7" wide rim. as above, do-able. if too wide, you'll have excessive side-side 'squirm'.

what model GT do you have? JTS/JTD/V6?

i'd stick with the original size on those wheels.

205/50x17 - same diameter as 225/45 but narrower and higher profile should give a more comfortable ride than 215/45
