Default Going from 16's to 17's. Need advice.

I have a 2003 limited. I want to get some 17 inch wheels for it. I've pretty much decided on the wheel, but my problem comes in on the tires. I have suspension and would like to fill in the gap more. What size tires should I consider? Not looking for a bouncy ride either, although this PT does go over many MANY pot holes.

Thanks for any advice guys.

I can tell you that the stock 17" size is 205-50. If that helps. If you want to loose the gap just lower it.

The usual tyre size on 17" wheels is 225/45 17. If you want more rubber you can go for 225/50 17 but these tyres wil do some other things besides "filling the gap":

They will lift your car.
They will make your odometer show a wrong speed.
