I'm looking at wheels with these specs

Sizes:17x7
Lip Sizes:N/A
Bolt Patterns Available:5x100
Offset:42mm
Center Bore:73.1

Will it work?

That should work just fine, only thing I'm not positive on is the center bore so you might want to just make sure that is large enough, but it sounds like it is.

Either will work. I even had 235/45 with minimal rub at full lock

235 is a little wide for a 7 inch rim tho, stay with 225 it will be more responsive with almost the same contact patch

You could go 235 then or 245/40 bit that may rub strut

If it rubs the inner strut yes, but if it rubs the spring perch(too big diameter) then your kind in a hard place

Would that size be OK if I was lowered?
235/40/17

235/40/17 will clear the strut. You *may* experience a small rub when bottoming out or turning at full lock. All tires are a little different, even of the same size.

Its been a long time since I have had fender liners.

if you look around tirerack.com's website they'll tell you what size is recommended for 17's on your beretta. Whatever size they said it what I used when I had mine.

pretty sure summit sells a tool that you bolt to you wheel bearing that will measure exactly what will fit without rubbing. not sure of the p/n but just call and ask and they always seem to know their $hit. Havent done me wrong

I can verify that 225/40R18 will easily fit and I have eibachs, also, Jamie, a fellow member has the same on his car with the canucks or sprint springs I believe with no issues.
