Unfortunately there is nothing in the wheel specs that will tell you for sure if a given wheel will clear the brake caliper as the spoke design itself comes into play. If you find a 17X7.5" wheel that clears, you can use 205/50R17 or 225/45R17. If the wheel ends up being a 17X8, stick with 225/45R17.
