215/40-17 front, 225/40-17 rear?

Those are the sizes listed in the specs on the Scion website.

Possibly (likely) in error...

Not much turnover here, and I haven't seen it mentioned.

BTW,
search "215/40-17" => "no matches"
search "225/40-17" => "no matches"
search "FR-S tire size' => "no matches"

It's likely a website error. Multiple press releases, plus all the media reviews, plus seeing the FR-S and BRZ in person at NAIAS all show 215/45-17 front and rear.

Tire size spec = 2nd result
Tire size error = 1st result
