You get what you paid for basically.
I would steer clear of the Nankang tires. There are plenty of proven tires out there that are cheap.
Stick with them. Sorry for the pun.

215/45/17 will fit and covers up the wheel well area better. You should get hubcentric rings to prevent your steering wheel from shaking.

Here you go. http://www.justforwheels.com/index.jsp?cat=hubcentric&sub=how
I was the same way. My steering wheel shook like crazy and people said hubcentric rings and I wondered why I never heard of them. It stopped the shaking though. thumbsup

I just got some put on mine, and damn, I swear it feels like I put some $180 tire on. Handling is awsome, so is the traction. The tire still looks good. This is by far the best tire I have gotten so far.

I had Chapperros (sp) on my Talon. They were like $60 each for 205/40/R16s. Handled great. A lot of road noise when I hit bumps tho.
