I put on 235/45/r17 all seasons all around with the stock alloys. They have been great and a nice wider upgrade then stock. Low road noise, great tread and wet traction. No rubbing. Best value I could find and it helped that pep boys had their buy 4 get 1 offer on them. Hope that helps.
Note on Pep Boys' deal: When I used this deal, only after the tires were mounted did they mention on the invoice that to get that deal you have to pay them extra profit (they call it road hazard warranty) per tire of $14.95. Just figure this into your prices when shopping. Since then, I use TireRack shipped direct to Pep Boys for mounting. I also bring my wheels in loose in another car since I don't like my wheel bolts torqued to over 150 ftlbs.
