Default 17" rims and tire combo

Hello everybody,

What would be the best 17" rims and tire combo. I really want to use 45 series tires (i like a thicker sidewall). I had success with my prior Honda Civic Coupe with 17" Tenzos on 215/45 tires. I plan to lower the car also using lowering springs to about 1.5"

Would this seem feesible? What would the ride handle like? Is the 45 series tires to big?

Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

I remember when I put 18 on my and had a blow out problem but I'm thinking because of the alignment wasn't right when they put them on. I had the remove the inner side wheel wells because of rubbing probs but you should look out with 45 it'll make the your Aerio seem taller even with the drop and more SUV type cool good luck. Remember Alignment is key and tire balance
