17" Type-S rims for my 99 TL

Hey guys/gals,

I picked up some 17" type-s rims last week. Need to get some tires on but not sure what would look good.

I'm looking for summers and something that will be flush with the car. I think stock tires are 215/50/17?

I was thinking 2XX/45/17? I'm a noob when it comes to tires, so any suggestions would be appreciated.

I'm running a 225/50R17 and it works out nicely if your car is stock ride height. If my car was slightly lowered I would probably go with a 45 series but since mine is still at stock ride height, the 50 series works out perfect. The 50 series fills out the wheel well better.

it is possible to do 225/45 you wont be off the overall diameter by much.

with 45's ur gonna get a lower stance, and at 225, you will get more grip on the road.

The 45 series will make the wheel gap look bigger.

You honestly probably won't notice much difference between a 225 and a 215 but the 225 does put more rubber on the ground and it clears on our cars with no clearance issues so i figure why not go 225.

So I'll go with 225/45/17, do you guys know if it will be flush with the fender?
( I am lowered on Tein SS right now.)

I found Sumitimo HTR Z3 for 530 installed?
OR
Nanking NS2 for $99 each installed...but heard the grip during wet is bad...

If you are on coilovers, you can adjust it to be flush no matter what tire you get.

Slight delay in getting the tires. Getting them installed tomorrow!

I went 215/45 R17 - Kumho Solus KH16 = $390.00 cdn

These are the type of rims:

am i missing something or is everybody missing that hes using stock Type S wheels?

unless you use MASSIVE spacers you wont be flush no matter what tire size you use.. the deep tuck of those wheels wont even come close to the fenders...

You dont seem to be that blind since you said they looked similar and not the same. TL spokes are thicker and more squared off than your rims are.
