225/45 isn't recommend but plenty do it. 215/50 is considered safer.

well... its been 60k on 2 sets of tires (and i drive hard) and no problems. really depends on the tire also. diff brands and models can say they are the same size but in reality actually be dif dimensions. i run 225/45 fuzion zri
