    Why?
    225/45/17 is the correct size for your car, 235's will increase the rolling radius/gearing etc, why woud you wan to do this?

    I was thinking of getting 225/40/17 next because i thought the lower profile would look better.

    This will reduce the rolling radius and put your speedo out even more, + you'll be clocking up about 5% more miles than you're actually doing.
    Also the lower profile will leave a bigger gap between the wheelarch so it'll look like a 4x4. Get some 18's if you want it to look good.
