215/45/17 . More tire so your less likely to bend a rim and it will also fill the wheel well area better.

i have 17x8 35 offset on my car with 235/40/17 nice and wide and not much taller then stock.. .2" so i am not worried. They don't rub but I haven't had a chance to drive them hard or hit any bumps so thers a chance they might... what ever they are wide!!
