Narrowest 17 inch Tire for 17x7 Wheel?

I need to switch from 17x9 wheels on the front to 17x7 for crusing, since I will no longer have P/S. I want to trade my 17x9 Cobra Rs for some of the 17x7 Ford Wheels, then put the narrowest tire that will fit on them.

Anyone know what the narrowest 17 inch tire available is, that will work on a 17x7 wheel. I have a set of skinnies for the track, but want something for cruising that will turn fairly easy.

What tire height are you looking for? I know the recomended size for the Ford 7" wheels is 235-55-17.

You could probably get away with 215s on a 7" rim, but I wouldn't go any narrower than that.

-91 Cougar LS, coming soon, complete overhaul with a 427" Windsor.
-90 XR7 5-speed black on black w/sunroof, MP2, coated rotors, double intercooler, 15%OD, ported heads, comp stage 1 cam, 85mm TB, 90MM LMAF, 80# injectors, and ported big valve heads
-98 Mark VIII LSC, Procharger P600b, TR3650 swap and 3.73s.
-90 SC Automatic rustbucket winter beater
-97 Tbird Sport 4.6 Nice weather daily driver

I could deal with 215 s on it. Trying to locate some 17x7 wheels now.
