Forgive me if this has been discussed. I could not locate anything on it. So if there is a thread on it already, please advise...

I am wanting to swap out my 17"s (R85s) for something in the same size and lighter. A couple of wheels have caught my eye, but I do not wish to re-purchase new tires.

Question: Will the 205/45-17 that come on the car fit a 17"x7.5" wheel? Or do I have to go to 215s?

Thanks in advance!

Well, I found a listing of a bunch of lightweight wheels and how much they weigh. So I created a schedule with pics (got some time on my hands & I like schedules).

17x7s include: Enkei RP02-J (15.7lbs), 5Zigen FN01R-C (16.0lbs), Enkei RP03 (16.3lbs), or Centerline RPMs (13.5lbs), Racing Dynamics Pro Race 2 (15.4lbs)

17X7.5s include: 5Zigen FN-01R (14.0lbs), Advan Racing RG (15.2lbs), Kosei K1 Racing (16.0lbs)

Just cannot decide which one to pursue. It appears that on eBay, the R85s are going for about $400/set plus shipping, so it would be a timing difference! The price of the new wheels less the R85s.

I like the Centerline RPMs and the Racing Dynamics Pro Race. Where can you find a good deal on them?
