Question Wheels help

Again, I'm clueless with this stuff....but any recommendations on wheel size? I think I am set on 17" but what about the rest of the wheel measurement, what would be good for an '04 ION QC? Thanks

you could go with a 215/40/17 or 225/45/17 but the 205/40/17 would be your best bet.You might be able to squeze on a 225/35/17.This all depends on how wide a wheel your goin with example 17/7.5 or 17/8 17/8.5.Hope this helps

Great, thanks! So... if I went with 205/40/17 wheels which size tire would you recommend?

Thats exactly what im going with.

Great Combo and the 7.5in wide tire will help a lot with traction.

Actually a 215/45 - 17 is the ideal tire for 17" rims.

That will give you hardly ANY discrepencies in your mph readout and actual mph

Dizzy wheels

Thanks for the input Washamur! Now I'm frustrated since others had recommended the 205/40/17 and now u say 215/45/17 lol!!!!

The only vinyls I have on my car are:

Side Stripe from SignsPlus in San Antonio, Texas
Saturn Logo on center caps from FASTSigns in Midland, Texas
&
Ptuning.com vinyl on back windows from Ptuning.com (that's where I've gotten everything)

Used to have a black SPS decal under the side Saturn logo, but removed since I'm using Ptuning for the better prices.

Here's a tire calculator to determine the size you might want

This is what the ION Red Line uses.... so Saturn must think this combination works best for performance on the ION.
