Will 225/45/17 tires fit on my cobalt?
With that being said, I need recommendations for a tire that size to get. It just has to be from tirerack.com. Thanks

yeah, that will fit givin that you have 17" rims :laugh:... eh, idk much about brands, i have Nankang & they're alright, kinda bulky for a 40 series tire, so i'm gonna switch to Falken when I get my new tires in the spring... but as for recommending anything, cant help ya much there, lol

Those Bridgestone's are tires I'm considering...I am looking for 225/40 18's and I'm considering Yokohama S.Drive, BFG KDW 2, and Bridgestone Potenza RE760 Sport's.

I recommend 225/45 for 17's just because you have the most tire choices along with decent pricing and the 225 looks nice.

If you want cheap 17" tires that will still be pretty good look at General Exclaim UHP's.

I am a fan of the BF Goodrich tires. I have good luck with different styles of them lasting longer than the ratings. Like 70,000 miles out of 35,000 mile tires.

Bf Goodrich ! and i would go with a 225/40/17 ... that size is low but wide. I love it. The 45 series sidewall was just too meaty for me and if i were to hit any bumps the rear tire was sure to rub

225 is the width right? yeah I want a wider width, and won't 45's fit? they might throw off the speed ratio but oh well lol

225/45 is the proper size for your speedo to be fairly close...225/40 17 is going to throw it off a bit more.

I'm gonna get these on my stock rims, how well do you think these perform in non snow
There is absolutely no reason to get a winter/snow tire for no snow...just get a decent all season and you'll be fine. If you mean for putting them on before snow comes, they'll be fine...just not too early...winter tires on dry pavement will wear a lot faster than they do in the winter...all the siping will wind up useless in the snow if you drive on them too long on dry pavement.

With those sizes it's a half inch difference on the sidewall. 4-3.5 inches.

I usually say go big or go home, but were talking about cars so I'd personally go with225/40/17. Especially with you lowered.
