That looks EXCELLENT. However, if I can make one recommendation - that may be a little wordy for some people to filter through. It might be a good idea to take SWortham's post (it's in a thread pinned in Wheels & Tires) about what tire/wheel sizes will fit and at least take bits and pieces there as a summary since he has mainly numbers and you have mainly words.

I know it's a wiki and a free for all, but I don't feel right taking someone else's work and putting it in - feels a little like plagiarism (maybe I'm just paranoid that way given my field). OTOH if someone else wants to do it... tongue.gif

I'm a good 90-95% confident of everything I wrote there, but I welcome suggestions and tweaks I don't think it's complete somehow. I feel I should include my personal experience, which is that 17x7 +40mm wheels fit with 205/45R17 tires, but not quite with 215/45R17. That's 6mm further out to start with, and then the tires stick out either 5mm (205, no rubbing) or 10mm (215, rub) on each side, so that means I have 11 < X < 16mm of room on the outside. But it was already long and 11-16mm isn't that specific, it's only applicable to 45-series tires on +40 wheels.... what's the point?

Sorry it took me a while to read it. The stock alloys are 6" wide and the steels are 5.5".

Changed. Feel free to edit; I kind of left that unfinished I feel.
