Default What tires can I fit on my stock IS250 17x8 10 spoke rims?

I'm looking to replace my tires on my 2011 IS250 RWD. I'm currently running the stock 17" 10 spoke rims on my car with Bridgestone Potenza RE92.

Current tire sizes-
Front: 225/45r17
Back: 245 45r17

Can anybody tell me what other options I have for tire sizes that will fit on my car without rubbing besides the ones I currently have? I'd really appreciate the feedback!

The tire sizes you have are really optimal, but you could do slightly wider (and taller), to maintain the correct ratio front to rear, 235/45-17 front, 255/45-17 rear... I wouldn't go any bigger... Also, 255/45-17 isn't the most popular tire size ..
