Ok I am looking to buy some Enkei Evo5 17's(bronze/gold is the only good colour rim for a red car imo lol) and I cant find much info on how low profile I can go with them. All I can find is the optimal tire size, so I figure someone will know and can hopefully give an answer.

Heres a link to gauge wheel size with tire tread for speedometer accuracy
Tire Size Calculator - tire & wheel plus sizing

obviously optimal is as close to zero, which is 17 inch wheels with a 40 tread tire, and its recommended to not go more than 3% higher or lower the size off of standard for the stock wheels/tires with the speedometer

Thanks for the suggestions, and the pictures made it alot clearer since i know absolutely nothing about tires. I guess I will need to slam it like 3 feet once i get the rims and tires so it doesnt look to ridiculous. I swear this car has more clearance than my jeep did lol

my speedo was off by 4mph with the wheels/tires it came on it, and when i threw the 17's on my speedo is perfect, soo weird. but def remember that when you're driving if you change wheel size your speedo will be off
