Going to have disagree with that statement. I used to own 215/45/17 without a drop, and it looks like your a 4x4. Looks bad in person, and looks bad in pictures. Its not as bad as 205/40/17 without a drop, but it still looks terrible.

There is something wrong with rims and no drop. You look like a fool. Why spend all that money on rims and tires, and look worse than you were before. If you're not going bother lowering your car, why put rims on it. If don't drop your car, you might as well stick to stock size rims, and stock size tires.

wheel gap = UGLY

There's no arguing that.

For the record, lowered cars look better period. Lowered cars with oem rims look better than cars with big rims without a drop.

I have 215/45's on my stech lowered 2001 and it doesn't rub.
I had 205/40's before these, but wanted a little better ride. It is amazing how much a little sidewall will help the ride. I can hardly tell the difference between these and the oem 15" tire as far as ride goes.

Re: New Rubber! Yes!!!

i haven't been able to afford a drop, and I've had my rims and new tires since february of last year. Cooper Zeon ZPT 215/45/16. Mine actually doesn't look that bad. Not a 4x4, at least.

45 series on a 17 = domestic looking.
40 series on a 17 = 10X better looking.
50 series on a 17 = WTF!

Re: New Rubber! Yes!!!

well I wanted to go with the 215/45 but i went with the cheaper 40s so the rims an tires only cost me 5 bills. as for the drop....i know i wana drop it more but right now its perfect for DD around here. plus the camera angles just emphasize the wheel gap. thanks for the positive feedback

so let me get this straight you reccomend a 50 series but not a 40 series. do you even know what the 40/50 series stand for. its a percentage of the tread width. with that being said do you knwo the difference in sidewall you just suggested?

i suggest looking at some tire size charts. a 215/45/16 is with in .1" of a stock tire size. so it doesnt look bad with a drop at all or with out for that matter. i run 215/45/16's on my integra with stech springs and agx shocks.
then on my vic i run 225/40/18's with out rubbing on eibackm prokits and agx's. i did shave the rear fender lip down but that was as simple as it gets with a rotary tool and grinding bit
