i have sportlines. 225/40/17 would be ur best if you have 17x8's like i do, but it is HARD to find that size tire. but 215/45/17 is fine, i use this size, stretched on 17x8 wheels. no matter what, with sportlines, ur fenders gonna rub, when u hit bumps, and dips, specially with stock shocks after time.

no...it means you get a camber kit to dial in some negative camber.
Which will also improve handling when you increase the front camber and at a very small sacrafice of tread life.

I run 17x8 with a 235/40/17 tire (those are wicked hard to find, gonna have to bump it up to 245) and I dont rub but my springs are twice as stiff as sportlines.
