Need advice on tire size for 05 TL's (searched just need opinions)

I just bought a set of 05 TL rims. These rims run wide I believe 17x8 with a stock tire size of 235/45/R17. +45 offset

I have noticed that this rim sticks out slightly on the minimal bb6's that I could find pics of with the TL's. (all running the factory tire).

I don't think it is possible to get anything narrower than a 215 on there. I was thinking of running the narrowest tire possible and also did not want to affect the overall stock diameter of my lude. So I was thinking 215/40/R17.

My question is would it be possible to run a narrower tire? (doubt it) and would a 215/35/R17 be smaller than the stock diameter.

Thanks in advance.

i would recommend a 225 tire, it will be stretched a little but will look awesome. there is someone on here with TL-S rims. lemme see if i can find the link.

EDIT: found it --> http://preludezone.com/showthread.php?t=19218
