Default Just bought JDM STI wheels... proper tire size?

I just ordered a set of JDM STI wheels from JDMSpecC4u - should I order 225/45/17 or 215/45/17 tires? Since fitment is 17x7.5, I would think that 225 would fit better. How about 225/40/17?

Thanks in advance.

225/45 or 235/40 for improved gearing

Which JDM STI wheels are these ? I have a set of 17x8 +53mm offset 5x100 Forged BBS JDM STI wheels in the classic BBS mesh design....but mine are 17x8, which is not that commonly available in the 5x100 pattern, with a +53mm offset.
