On Tuesday I am putting new wheels 16x7 with 205/40/17's, Eibach springs and KYB struts. Anyone have anything like this? If so how was handling and ride affected. Any tire scrubbing problems? Let me know.
What offset are you running? Without knowing that, I can't tell you if you'll have fitment problems.
I run 215s on my NX without any problems, but I'm running a +35 offset. Stock is +40, but it's positive offset, so the lower the number, the wider the track, so my setup is 5 mm wider than stock.
Handling is *much* improved. I don't know about the KYBs, but with GABs and Pro-Kits, my car handles like a little (cheap!) Porsche.
I remember at a meet in Rochester I went to, there was a guy in a Classic trying to keep up with me through an s-bend, he was running 205 SP8000s on 15" rims, and he skidded the back end out trying to keep up
