Need help with wheels/rims

Hey guys im new to this and i was wondering if its possible to put 17 inch rims with 205/40x17 tires on my 2005 pontiac G6 (comes stock with 205/60x16) without it scraping?

You should be fine mine are 1" wider than yours and they dont rub. But for future reference you can use this calculator to compare.

205 is pretty narrow. The stock 17's had 215 and 225 widths I believe.

I'd pick a different aspect ratio if that's the section width you want to stick with. The 205/40r17 is ~2 inches smaller in diameter than the 205/60r16.
