you might want to make sure you got the right size tires for your rims.

Cause my friend Jasper has G-game rims and he has spacers on his to prevent uneven tire wear. You probably most likely need them and he has 17's too!

no 40 and 45 series is like a few centimeters difference. I wouldnt worry about that.
