Default What size tire should I go with?

I am going to be buying a set of 17x8 wheels and want a tire size that is nice for D.D. and weekend auto X. I am thinking 245/40 or 245/45 is this too wide or not? thanks for the help.

Maybe even a 235/45?

thanks for all the help I am going to order the Bridgestone RE-01Rs. They seem to be very well rated.
