205/45/17 Run Flat Will they fit

Hi all

I have some RFT take off from my MINI Cooper S - they are 205/45/17 which are around 7" width.

They have a lot of tread left so before I sell them I was thinking of using them on my 325 sport 161 front wheels (which I think are 8" width)

I have leased the car for two years and figure Iwill need front tires by 30,000

I am guessing the wheel will stand a little proud , - assuming load rating is ok?

Yeah I know they would look a little skinny but was planning to put them on at lease turn in - I know some folks have fitted lesser width tires on scubbies before

I am more concerned if load rating will be ok - I want to make sure they are safe for potential new owner
