17" Motegi Crome MR7 Tire Question
Hey guys i'm getting these 17" Motegi Crome MR7 RiMs.

http://rimsone.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=238&osCsid=6c2d7ea92a89ccdbd62ef2b5f630fdb0

I have a 2001 Silver Celica. I was wonder what Dimension tires I should get.

Would These fit?

I'm not too sure what all the 205/40/17 means :-P I know the 17 means the rim size though! hehe

please help. thanks!

205/40/17 is the tires that I would go with for 17's. thumbsup

205(in mm) is the width of the tire, 40 is the height(aspect ratio), and 17 is the wheel size.

215 40 R17's are really close to stock size. If your spedo is reading 60mph, then you're actually doing 58.6MPH I believe. Better to be a bit slower than it says, than to be a bit faster.
