    Biggest Tyre on 17" (Coupe)

    Does anyone know what the biggest tyre I can get on a standard Coupe Turbo rim 17"x7.5 (or is it 7?), fitted to the front of a Coupe Turbo?

    I'm hoping 235-45-17.

    Thanks.

    lol - that is why I'm asking. I want to get some Toyo R888 tyres for the front for Santapod. There are only two sizes that would fit my rims, 205-40-17 and 235-45-17.

    No probs on 215/40/17 Toyo R's - well sort off!

    Don't forget though that technically increasing the area of contact on the road isn't always good, as you are also trading the downward force of the cars weight as it has a bigger area to disperse over .
