get Falken 205/40's ^this^ is them on a 16x7.5, it will look the same on a 17. not a whole lot of stretch, but some. you could get falken 205/40's all around, or a 215/35 for a little less stretch. i have 18x8.5 all around with nakang 215/35's and it has a nice mellow stretch nothing crazy. Nankang's and Falkens are the best for stretching IMO and they're really cheap. you can easily google and look around for pictures of different tire sizes on any size wheels. or use tyrestretch.com

205/40/17 looks stupid small in b5 wheel wells
I would have never dreamed of running tires that small, until I saw pics of my car from the PO
(audixride) on 205/40's. It looked totally fresh. Realistically they are only a ****hair smaller than the tires you run. I run 13's on my mk2 and those tires are tiny. The speedo is off by like 15mph.
