need rims asap
I'm looking for black rims with polished lip. The question i have is i just bought toyo proxes 4 215/45/17's, what rim size should i get. I know 17's but when i search, they'll have 17x8 or 17x9. What does the number after the tire size mean?

yeah I was wondering this too.. like tire width is kinda flexible right? what is recomended tire width for sertain width wheels? like if I have 17X8 is a 215 better and a 17X9 better with a 245? or does it really not matter?

17x9 with P215 tires will look like the tire is overstretched out. For P215 tires, you'll want 17x8 for sure, I think that's the perfect fit.

GO to tirerack and look at the tire specs it will give a rim width range... i would say for a 215 a 17x7 would be your best bet.
