    215/45 17 IS THE wrong size tyre for the wheel

    The factory fitted ones are either 215 50 17 or 225 45 17

    No. Both 215/50/17 & 225/45/17 are recommended sizes in the handbook.

    The 225/50/17 mentioned in this thread isn't a recommended size and if you were involved in an accident and had a picky insurance assessor, then that could be a reason not to pay out.
