Default Best tire size of 17 x 7.5

Is it 205/40R17 or 215/40R17

17 inch Axis Reverb wheels because my car isn't a dedicated quick machine, more of a all-rounder, are drag racing holds no charm for me.

I don't think there is a big market for 45 aspect ratio 17 inchers in something as narrow as a 205 or 215, my question still goes unanswered, what is better fitting for a 7.5 inch wide wheel? 205-215, disregard rubbin' I'll be using some modest H&R Spacers.

no it will be heavier, and bigger. More rotational mass, and bigger rims (kind of like longer gear), rubbing, and shitty side wall equals **** perfomance wise.

yeah but they are bigger so it's just like putting a different final drive in your tranny. Plus there is more mass on the outer radius so rotational mass goes up alot. On torqueless honda motor it's a suecide.

215 40 17 for a 7.5 inch rim, 215 has more sidewall and protects the lip of the rim alot better.
