hey guys, a shoutout from the land down under (australia) :)
we call our forte's cerato here and yeah, i am a total newb in everything so i was wondering if anyone could help me?

so i checked the manual and it says
tyre sizes
195/65 R15 91H or
205/55 R16 91H or
215/45 R17 87H

so the thing is, my car was bought new with 15" stock steel rims and i want to upgrade to this 17" ZUMBO AFFILATO wheel

the specs of the zumbo wheel are as follows
Affilato
17"x7
5x114.3
35
73.1
Machine Mat Black

and require wheels 215/40R17 ?

so my question is will these fit on my car? since the tyre size in the manual says 215/45 R17 instead of 40??

I just took a quick look at the Upgrade Garage on TireRack.com and it shows 17x7 wheels being matched with 215/45-17 tires on the Forte. Not sure if that helps you at all, but I tried! :p

hmmm..because im planning on buying it 2nd hand, and i doubt he'll let me 'try it on' ..
i might have to call the dealer tomorrow and pretend like im interested in buying a new pair, and see whether they can fit it.

thanks for your help! anyone else have any clue??

Just go to a local wheel/tire shop and tell them you're "pricing" tires. Tell them you have this type of car and are getting these wheels. How much for tires and what size?
