OK, so I've got a couple of bucks to do something fun. I think the OEM tires suck, and I think the OEM rims are too narrow for something significantly wider (I'm thinking 245/40/17, so an 8 or 8.5 inch width is what I really need). Has anyone besides FluXtC put really wide rims on their tC? At least 8, preferably 8.5 or even 9 would be great to know if it fits. Michelin likes the 8.5 for Pilot Sport PS2s in 245/40/17, and that tire has an almost identical rolling diameter as the 215/45/17 OEM size.
