I would like to re-use the 17" snow tires (225/50R17) that I have from my 2007 MKZ on my 2014 MKZ AWD 3.7L. Car is currently running on factory 19" wheels ( 8.5" wide) 245/40R19 tires.
The OD of the 225/50R17 is the same as the 245/40R19.
I have found a number of 17" x 7.5" aftermarket wheels that will fit my snow tires.
Questions I have are: 1) What is correct offset for a 17" wheel for my car; 2) Will there be any interference issue with the 17" wheel and the calipers?
I know that 18" wheels will fit, but I am trying avoid buying a new set of rubber. As it is, I will need to buy the wheels and the TPMS valves.
Thanks for your help!
