Re: tire spec question
The Tire-Loading Information label, which is located
on the rear edge of the driver’s door, shows the correct
inflation pressures for your tires when they’re cold.
“Cold” means your vehicle has been sitting for at least
three hours or driven no more than 1 mile (1.6 km).
If you’ll be driving at speeds higher than 100 mph
(160 km/h) where it is legal, raise the cold inflation
pressure of each tire to,
- 38 psi (260 kPa) for tire size P225/55R16
- 39 psi (270 kPa) for tire size 235/45R17
When you end this very high-speed driving, reduce the
cold inflation pressures to those listed on the
Tire-Loading Information label.
So from this I have to assume that 17" rims with 235/45R17 size tires should be good.
Better check with Tire manufacturers allowed tires guides when you search for your car to be double sure.
