Groovi, welcome aboard!

What country are you writing from? What brands of tires do you have access to? Do you drive in a lot of snow? What is your driving style?

I've been a fan of Michelin for a long time. I find they make an excellent tire that wears well. Good highway cruiser.

We use the Tire Rack website when trying to make a buying decision. You can find many written reviews and users' comments:

That wheel is called an S5 Rotor - lots of brands of replicas available.

225/45x17 will fit well. As will 235/45x17 or 235/40x17 with that offset.

I use 235/40x17 on mine and find it gives a very accurate speedo, but 235/45x17 are a more common size and may give more choice in brands and price...
