Hey, I need some quick advice. Will 17x7.5 et42 fit on my GP? What tires should I run on that setup if it will fit?

I got type crs in that same spec.
I would avoid running 215/45s if you are lowered (mine rubs in the rear with -3.5 camber)

I'm at stock height as of now, but plan to lower it in the future. I was thinking 225's but didn't know if they would be too wide or not.

225 is a very beefy tire. I am running 225/50/16 on a 9 inch wheel. with wide arches. and they are meaty. i would go with a 215

Yeah, I can't really find any 225/40/17 tires on the web? Looks like 225/45 or 225/35, which is a bit too small of sidewall for me. I will probably end up going with 215's.

Good choice i think that's the perfect size for 17's on a mini. looks meaty but not too balloon like.
