need to get some new tyres on my front rims and they need to be a bit more narrow to stop rubbing my wings. i have 255 40 17 on at the mo and was either going to get 235 45 17 or 235 40 17 on but can make my mind up. shall i just get the 40 profile and stretch them a bit or will the higher side wall of the 45 be better due to them getting stretched?

the rolling radius dont bother me, its the stretch of them that does as i dont want to damage my vented wings anymore and i dont want to raise the car either
