You can go up to 225/45 on 17x7s nicely.. That is what I run for autox on my ND with stock springs.  The 225s will rub a bit at full lock.  If you don’t like that, going down to 215 will work.

I have run the Advan A052s and they will definitely get you some of the best times if that is what you are concerned about.  They wear more like 100tw though, so be prepared to go through at least one set per season.  You won’t get the best road feel from them due to softer sidewall.

I’ve heard good things about Falken RT660s, which sound like a better compromise between grip, durability and road feel.

I currently also have a set of Kumho Ecsta V730s..  These are nice because they maintain grip through heat cycles during a long day at limerock and will last a lot longer than the advans..  Better feedback too.  Not nearly as grippy as the advans and do not get amazing times though.  I use these most days to have fun and when I want a good time I throw the advans on.
