Which is better with 17 inch rims, 215/40 tires or 215/45. I have a 190e stock suspension height.

1 Look in owners manual and find out what tire size was standard.

2. Use a "tire size" calculator (you can find this on web) and determine what rolling diameter of original tire was.

3. See which on of the 17" tire preferences are close to original diameter of OEM tire.
