    the stretch and the extreme negative camber most guys use to go "hellaflush" are going to wear any tire you buy. if it was me i would just go for a cheapish one because performance is not much of consideration anyways.

    205/45 on a 16x7 is hardly stretched...

    Here you go- these will last you forever on those wheels:

    Your wheels might be flush with your fenders but you still got hella gap in there! Here is my buddies miata with the same wheels

    on a 7" wheel you need like a 165 to get a decent stretch.

    this is what stretched looks like:
