    225/47?/17 are they not 45? mine are on standard avus alloys. depends how much stretch you want, and how much protection to your wheel. you could get 225/40 or 215/40, that wouldnt be too extreme

    Whats wrong with 225 section? You can fit others but you'll affect the rolling circumference of the wheel which means your speedo will be out.

    Here is a tool you can use to see how much difference it makes - the new tyre size will have a smaller circumference by 18mm.

    i think, if you got lower profile stretched tires, they'd look even smaller, well they would be
