I agree with Sahil, for comfortable driving and max efficiency u shouldnt be going beyond 215 on 17s, else with ur 15 or 16s 205 is plenty. I have friends who have 225 on 17s too but u can feel the difference in driving majorly. I havent driven my car with the 235s yet but im sure ill be lacking on performance a tad bit. Like i said before i have them for a different reason otherwise id stick to 215 or 225 max.

Hi Sahil & autopsyche,Thanks for the commence...

In web site they have given Recommended tyre size are
215/45R 17,225/45R 17 or 245/40R 17 so i was thinking 245 will be good.....That is my dream to put 245.......Reg power- I think turbo is enough Reg FE - I dont mind .....I have already got 17" and i will get it on 15 or 20th Feb so i can not go for 16" now...pls advice

Regards,

Pretty expensive so an entire set would come up to around 80,000 or so depending on what u get.
