Standard issue would be 235/45/17. You can also go 245/40/17 or 255/40/17, though you get a little bit more flex in the wider sizes. The 235's have been standard on 17x8" rims since the AU, and with these there should be no need to recalibrate the speedo or anything.

yea i can understand high profile but how the hell does width affect speed. If a tyre is 1 inch wide rolls down the street at 20km's how would a 20 inch wide tyre roll qiker given the same conditions as the first.

I aint too sure, width hasnt affected my car too much. I have the ELGT replicas and (strangely) i'm on 225/45/R17 tyres. I checked the speedo calc test and it said width doesnt do much in terms of speedo difference
but i'm not too sure. Thered be someone here who knows more than me :p
