i dunno, show me the sticky. ask most of us on here, id say 90% have the size me and pfizzle have, cuz its more common and better with pricing. a 215.45 tire is not as wide and a little taller. usually a 225.40 with a 1.5" drop fills up gap nicely without sitting too low.

from what i can tell about that thing, its tryin to get you as close to stock sizes as possible, so the diameter of this wheel and tire package is about the same as the diameter of your stock wheel and tire package. i just did a tirerack search for your tire size, which brought back 5 options, the cheapest being $169 Bridgestone, using me and pfizzles size, you get 72 results with the cheapest being a $95 Kumho. if you dont want your speedo to change at all, still retain basically the stock height, and really nothing change, your size is fine, but much more expensive.

yeah man plus tirerack is mad conservative, they like to keep things as close to the rule as possible. so never mind them, 225/45 or 225/40 is what most guys on here roll, and if i go 18s thats what im gonna roll.

if 225/45 has you so worried go with 225/40, it will give you a tad more clearance at the expense of a shorter sidewall, so then the pothole wont rub, they just bust your damn tire.
Dawg tons of cats role 225/45s no problem, hell tireack recomended i go 215/50 for my MDX 17s when i called to ask them if they could fit, just because the offset widened the track 5mm on each side. they are great people, but they are that conservative.
one thing i learned from them tho, make sure the load rating is 91 or higher for whatever tire you get especially if they are below 55 series, the AVR is pretty damn fat, so if you have a tire that is below the load rating, dont be suprised if one good pothole or manhole cover busts your tire. matter a fact try to get like 225/45/17 92, with the 92 being the load rating. also most people ignore it but be sure your speed rating is above 145mph, which is what Honda OEM tyres have. these two factors affect wheel performance and durability more than most people think.
