Roger, +45offset on a 7inch rim will probably not have any problems. But your rims are 7.5 inches right? Rim width and offset work against each other. The exact specs on my rims are 17x7.5 +51 offset. They sit exactly flush with the fenders in the front, the rear tucks inside the fender. And you know I'm running 215/50/17 with no problems.

I say when you get your new rims with +45mm, just go with 215/45/17. That way you'll definitely have no rubbing.

they are 17 by 7 not 7.5..so you guys are saying 50 series will work but 45 will be better?
Your rims are only 7 inches. Then I don't really think 50 series will have any problems.

45 series is a lower profile, so it's thinner, it will give you better handling because lower profile mean stiffer sidewall.
