    195 for a nice good eye catching stretch. But you will need to go very low to pull it off good.

    205 for a nice subtle legal stretch. That's what I ended up king with on the rays wheels mate

    The profile is really small on them.

    I'll post pics on both 195 & 205/40/17s when I get on the computer
