Default 2.0 limited wheel size?

The stock tire is 205/50R/17 with stock rim size 17x7.5 with 48mm offset

I'm wanting to run a separate set of winter tires for the car. I want to run a 235/45R/17 and was wanting to know if I can run that size and if I can also run 17x8 with 48mm rims

That size is fine height wise, not sure about width.

Usually you want a skinnier winter tee not a fatter one.

Also I would recommend getting a smaller daimeted rim for winters they will be able to take more abuse and you won't have to pay to mount tires every season.

The stock tires are 8" wide so no issue there
