    215/40 is standard size, think 205/50 will look a bit big.

    could possibly have some rubbing issues with a couple of people in the car, 50 profile is ok on 16" wheels but on 17" it is just too big, won't look nice.

    it will rub slightly, but the roads ive heard are shit in moscow so a bigger tyre may help.
