I WAS WANTING TO PURCHASE A SET OF 17 INCH RIMS FOR MY WIFE'S 2007 G6 SEDAN, THE WHEELS ARE 17X7.5 WITH A +35 OFFSET AND I'M HAVING TROUBLE DECIDING ON THE RIGHT SIZE TIRE. I WANT ALL THE WIDTH I CAN GET, WITHOUT RUB AND WITHOUT THE WHEELS SITTING OUT PAST THE FENDERS & LOOKING STUPID, WHICH I'M AFRAID THAT MIGHT HAPPEN WITH THE +35 OFFSET AND THE .5 INCH MORE ON WHEEL WIDTH, AND I AM AFRAID THE 45 SERIES WILL LOSE TO MUCH HEIGHT. WHAT WOULD YOU GUYS DO?

225/50/17-(stock size) will I still gain width with the stock size and a wider wheel?

235/45/17

235/50/17

I WOULD LIKE TO SEE SOME PHOTO EXAMPLES PLEASE.

It shouldn't at all. Stick with a 50 profile, dropping to 45 will throw off your speedo. The 235 width fills out the 17x8's on mine just perfect, so going that wide with yours should be fine.

You doing this to just the stock wheels?

NAH THESE WOULD BE FOR THE AFTERMARKET RIMS, WOULD IT MAKE A DIFFERENCE?

ON TIRERACK.COM THE 235/45 ARE JUST 1/4 INCH SHORTER THAN THE 225/50

AND THE 235/50 ARE 1/4 TALLER THEN THE 225/50
