Default Will I be OK ?

I have the chance to pick up 4 brand new 17" 'Sacchi S72' wheels for $350.00. I now have a 17 x 7 Rim with 215/45R17 tires. I want to put on 225/45R17tires. Will I have any problems putting a 225 tire on a 7 rim?

Your 215/45-17 is a slightly shorter (less diameter) size than stock. The 225/45-17 is an identical diameter to the original factory tires so that's well and good. The 225 aspect width will be fine on a 7" wide wheel.

At $350 you're paying top dollar for a set of used wheels so they had better be in top condition.
