    215/45 will be perfect. A 40 sidewall on 17s seem a bit too short, IMO.

    215/45 is closer to the correct size than a 215/40,and would be a mild stretch.

    205 would be pretty stretched, esp. 205/40. 205/50 would be the correct size anyway.

    So 215/45s for the 17x9s? Does sound better to have a littler more meat on the sides and gripping the road.

    That's what I had on mine, was a mild stretch. Worked well. If you want better handling put 225/45-17s on the front.

    Unless he plans to/already has his front fenders pulled, 225/45 will rub like crazy on turns and u-turns. This applies if you are tucking any amount of tire.

    Again, 215/45 is right on the money.

    Shouldn't be your concern if you aren't lowered.

    Get the mod priorities straight and then worry about wheels.

    Just a suggestion.

    225/40/18 if you decide to not heed the advice.
