Tire Size

I currently have 17" wheels with 215/45 tires. I was reading up on Wheels spacers, but a good friend recommended that I go with bigger tires instead. What size tires would work best, I am looking for this looks or better.

Scroll down a bit.

tires can change the look, but a simple tire size isn't going to do the same thing as a wheel spacer.

wheel spacers will push the wheel combo out, but you can run a 225/40/r17 and it will give you a much more square and aggressive sidewall too

"It's hammer time" lol thanks man, I will look into those. I might just go that route instead. I am though going to drop my car soon with some Eibach springs, and struts so we will see what happens.

You should be running 225/45/17 on a 9-5 anyways, thats the stock tire size for the 17's.

215's are for 9-3's.
