      if they are ET20, 205/40 may work, but that's a pretty weak tire size, and it will still rub if you lower the car at all (17" wheels will look pretty dorky at stock ix ride height).

        I'd wager you would clear with a 205/40.

                        Not really. Et25 is about the minimum for a 15x7, and even that has slight rubbing issues.

                            Yeah that will be fine. You could even add a 5-8mm spacer.

                              Has anyone ran a 17 x 8.5 ET40? Is 8.5 too wide? Would I be able to put a 5mm spacer on my IX?

                                you could maybe fit an 8.5 but definitely not with an offset of ET40. It wouldn't even bolt up because the wheel will clash with the struts and springs. You'd probably need an offset around ET20, and it's going to poke and look pretty ugly IMO. plus a 17x8.5 is going to be heavy.
