Hey im just trying to figure out if some wheels im planing on buying will fit or not, they are 17x7 with a 40mm offset with a 215/40-17 tire size. From what ive been able to check it seems like there wouldnt be any problems but I would like to know if anyone thinks that i might have any issues with them or not. oh and they are Konig Sideways. :D

thanks in advance for the help

depends, do you live where you need all-seasons like the northern states that have seasons. Or do you live in the southern states that see summer year round like CA??

personally I like the these

they are good in water when it rains and are quite, plus I like BF Goodrich
below seem to be the popular one I see a lot


basically go to a shop you like and look around, the people that deal with tires daily would be your best information IMO. Just don't buy cheap tires, you get what you pay for. I don't buy based on price, but by company that I use more and like. There is no one great tire, but a bunch of really good tires. I'd stay away from all-seasons and get something a little quieter since you live in summer all year long.

cheers

sweet how did you like them?
Konig has always been a good brand. I've had several of their wheels on my rides. Heres a couple of the box ....................





As far as the tires go - We also live in a dry climate and I ran Falken ZE-512's
which are a "All Season" tire. Not a bad tire for the money.
