What is the best tire for a 16" or 17" inch wheel.I was thinking about 225/55/17 or 225/60/16. Front will be lowered 2" and back 1" before I get the wheels. Is 7 or 7.5" better?

225/60/16 will not fit properly, a friend of mine has those on his car and he says he is having a slight rubbing problem. 225/55/16 look good on a stock sho but 225/50/16 look awsome on a lowered sho W/stock wheels. just my $.02

on a 17 you might need to go a bit loweer profile than 55 serise maby a 50 or even 45
