This would depend entirely on how wide the rims are. I have 7.5" rims with 205/50s that are more like 215s. This width is more for performance than looks. For looks only, the 225/50 on a 7.5" rim is perfect. 205/50s on a 7" rim is good also. As long as you keep the offset down those sizes will work fine. +40 to 45 mm offset is about where you want to be.
Better check tire widths before deciding on 205s. The one I have are 205s but are made somewhat wider than standard 205 tires. 215 or 225 might be more appropriate depending on what you are looking to do.
Yeah, that one is mine. Lowered with H&R springs, 1.8" in the rear, 1.2" in front, and another .5 inch all around from slightly smaller diameter tires.
I think 17s, either 7.5 or 8" wide, with 50 series tires is a good way to go.:smile2:
