    Dont think they make a 205 35 series. The 205 has to do with the width of the rim/tire and I believe you need to go up to a 215 35 17

    Hankook Ventus V4 ES H105

    Or you can go for a 205 40 17 all day long

    I like toyo

    your rim width 7 or 8? 7inch wide rims should be 205 and 8inch should be the 215 (which you can run the lower profile 35 series you want)

    isn't a 215 too wide for a 17x7??? I have read forums with others who have them unfortunately the "smarrt car" forums are pretty stuck up, I also saw some cars with the same tire here at our honda meet a while back so I know they exist....

    I've never seen them before but maybe they have them out now....I didn't find any on the world wide web though

    Just as my opinion....17's with 40 series ride rough enough....35's would be a whole new level of skipping and sliding down crappy roads

    when you said 'I found them here' thought you meant on this site...which could've been a typo but you meant a Honda swap meet in your town?

    how are teh streets there? .. if they're rough, you're gonna hate the 35 series tire.. if you could even find it.. 205/40 is the way to go..

    streets are pretty good here, I use this particular car for work and back home 4mi round trip so comfort and all that aren't too much of an issue.

    might just go with a 40 series, i've spend a good 3 days calling and searching and nothing. I wanted to stay as close to stock circumference and diameter as possible and looks like 40s will have to do. up to $20 now for any good info. BTW.....I just need the manufacturer or website

    15's have the best G-force rating for my hatch...

    But 17's look the best.

    15's are lighter (duh)

    17's are tanks

    I want some GSR flat fives

    Company makes a re-make $350 for a set (without tires) BRAND NEW!!
