you should be ok since it's only a 7" wide wheel.

they say the come with falken ziex 205/40/17 and rims are 40 offset, so going with 215/45 would be better then?

Yes,it will be off, by like 1% or so. that means that you'll go slower then the acctual speedo speed. Get 205/50 if your realy anal about it :p

it says they come with a 205/40.

call and see if they can give you a 215/45. a 215/50 will work but looks ugly.

if you go to the actuall ebay store it says it comes with the 215/50. I sent the guy a message asking if I could get the 215/45. Also I think its a +42 offset, take a look at the model number
