the wheels are 17x7 and the '07 stock suspension sits fairly high. What are you going for, just trying to get more rubber on the ground? you will probably not want to stretch a tire if you are at the stock height, that is just going to look bad and not ride well. normally folks stretch tires when they are trying to fit tires while going really low or on a wheel thats wider than 8" with a lower offset. The lowest id say to go on an EAP is a 205 if you want to stay at a 45 series.

The largest you could probably get away with before the width and sidewall height starts to get too much to fit would be a 225. Really depends on what you are trying to accomplish though. Going larger or smaller width while staying at the same 45 series will start to increase/decrease your speedometer readings.
