I agree. I think it'll balloon, or overlap the wheel at least.

Keep in mind gents he's going 40 series and not 45 so the balooning may be offset by the sidewall height are you going for some stretch or just a lower profile?

205/45/ 16....ha my bad, i just realized you wanted 40. But im going to post anyway. Go with the 45. the 205/45/16 is the same size as the stock wheel size. The profile of the tire doesn't look as beefy in real life, it looks very clean. Go with the 45

why put 40's on? they're not the right profile for the car...
