Default Biggest Widest tire for 17x7 rims front and back??

Hi guys whats the biggest and widest tire for both the front and the rear??? I bought a set of wheels with 205/40/17s on and they look way too thin

can I use 205/45/17 or even bigger 215/45/17?????

225 45 17 would also work, 235s would be pushing the envelope depending on wheel offsets. In the back you could go 245 40s and have a nice look to it. With my 18X8s I'm going 225 40 in the front and 255 35 in the rear...always liked that hotrod look

there are like a gazillion posts on this topic on every PT website ever created. try a search and you'll find all the answers you need.

I've got 215/45/17 tires on mine, and was told by the installer that I couldn't go any wider on 17 x 6 rims, but for 17 x 7, you could probably go to like a 235 wide tire.
