My LE came with 17X7 oem, I wanted to stay somewhat within spec only because I wanted to be as close to the speedometer readings. Although i’m a bit off due to the tire setup I currently run. I think it all comes down to cost with prices of tires etc, 17s compared to 18s. But 17x8s is perfect for me without running into rubbing issues. It’s all personal preference tho.Nice looking wheels. I am looking for wheels for my winter setup and while these would be overkill, I sure like them.
I am wondering how this sizing would be for my 2020 XSE (18" wheels standard) given this is for winter tires? In other words -
- what is the advantage of 17" ?
- how would this wider tire be for a winter ice/snow setup?
Replika R223 (available in silver or gunmetal):What wheel is that? I want to do something similar.
I don't suspect you'll have any issues! I previously had 17x8s with 255-width tires and had zero rubbing. I then went to a narrow set so I could have a matching full-sized spare.
The width looked great, but after a flat on a rainy day ruined an afternoon with my son, I pretty quickly committed to never relying on a donut again.
