205s(tires) on a 2000 GT, do they fit?

I was ordering these rims that came w/205/40/17 and the guy said that those wont work w/my car. I talked to some people and they said I need at least some 215s. So I was wondering if guys know if 205s work or not. 215s cost more money. And y dont they just make some 210s?

also you guys know any good sites that sells rims/tire packages? right now im looking around $750 for 4 tires and wheels and shiped.

I live in Norther Virgina for that one guy who asked? Man but 215s are more expenisve. I might as well do it right the first time. Do you guys have any good places to look for online. Ive already tried tirerack.com. How much did the total package cost when you ordered. And do you have to get them aligned at a shop once you put them on?

Im new as of today just to let you know.

I was looking for pics of 19's on Celicas, but couldn't find any. How thin would the profile be on one of those?

I have 205/40/17s i personally think 1 the side walls are to thin with 205s and i prefer 45s, i'm not gonna go out and buy new tires just because mine aren't what i'd like em to be but if you do it the first time i think its better for ya. I'm gonna burn mine up and get my some prelli pzeros.
