Tires for style 119

I have style 119 on an 04 330ci and was wondering about tire size. I want a beefier tire to fill the wheel well and was wondering if a square setup of 245 45 r17 would fit the rims and the car? I'm thinking Michelin pilot as3 or pirelli cinturato p7 plus.

I currently have 225 45 r17 and while they are nice, I feel it's too skinny. I like my rims and don't plan on changing them. I won't be running spacers and my suspension is stock.

Any thoughts?

Are you looking for a taller sidewall? If so, your speedometer and odometer will be off and you may rub. If you just want a wider tire, use the "tire comparison" feature at the link above to find a size with a similar overall wheel diameter.

For example, a 255/40-17 tire will have exactly the same diameter as your 225/45-17s and be an inch wider.
