I have 225 R45 17's on my PT with stock 1st Gen GT wheels. They are worry free and look very nice. Here's a size comparison chart:

Thanks for the reply, did you both go with 45 sidewall for fender concerns and wouldn't that be a harsher ride, were I live the roads aren't the best. I've ordered new struts and control arms and when everything gets here and put on I'll be going for the tires. I also need to look at replacing the center motor mount , I've watched some youtube videos and none were Turbo models , any process and videos you would recommend would be appreciated

45 sidewall is much larger than what others are going with for "low Profile" look!
I go for comfort.
Low Profile is HARSH!

I have the 225/45/17 on my GT. They clear the fenders fine. What they get close to is the strut. Tires can't be much taller or the will hit the spring mount on the strut. I have the 7 inch wide rims.
