I have some Enkies RPO2's i think. The fronts are 17x7.5 and the rears are 17x8. I wanted to run 225s all the way around, and they will fit but any ideas how the slightly nore rounded shoulder in the front will effect handling? I assume they will lose grip slightly faster, but is it even worth caring about?

The rear will break traction a little faster, but it will not be a noticeable difference. A 225 on an 8 is not really stretched, so it should feel completely normal.

What are your offsets?
I'm running 17x7 +48 front 17x8 +45 rear with 225/45f - 245/40r.
If your going to run staggered wheels,then I would run staggered tires.

Usually you would use staggered tire sizes but there is no problem in this case if you want to use the same size. The rear will still mount up slightly wider then the front.
