you'll be fine on that size. you might wanna run 225/45/16's instead. you're speedometer will still be close with 225's. the 215's will have a smaller overall diameter so your speedometer will read high.

Both 215/45 and 225/45 will be a bit shorter... you want to run 225/50 or 215/50 to be closer to the stock size.

225/50 is extremely close to stock tire diameter.
