Default Maximum width tire on 08-09 stock wheels?

What is the maximum width tire you can run on 08-09 stock wheels?

I am asking because it appears that the Sumitomo HTR 225/45 17's are wider than the Dunlop Sport 225/45 17's that came with the car (the Sumitomos are all seasons).

Is the width difference purely visual (the Sumitomos aren't mounted yet) because of the fact that they aren't aired up, or are they really wider??? I measured the tread width and they appear to be about 1/4 to 3/8" wider than stock.
