245/35
+25 is going to poke outside the fenders about an inch on stock suspension/camber.

I stayed with the stock 17wheel. I did change my tires though. I went with the 225 45 17 continental extream contact dw. They are an awesome tire. The main reason I stayed with the 17s so I could maintain the ratio and not loose any power. When you go bigger and out side the ratio you loose power and effency. The type of tire rubber and style matters more than size. In the future I may change to a lighter wheel but I will stay with the stock size. These cars handle extreamly well so I will not mess with the supession plus as it is now I don’t scrape of curbs or parking stops. I do recommend to put nitrogen in them as it’s better for the tires and mpg and it will maintain tire psi.

It looks like all these guys are running 225/40's, on wheels of the same spec, to get them to "fit."
