Default Help with rim and tire size

whats up guys
new to this forum so lookin for people who are good with cars

im looking into buying 17x7 Nissan Sentra Spec V Wheels for my 01 nissan sentra gxe that im workin on as a tuner. im pretty much set that im gonna buy those rims, but im looking at tires.....
now i have an idea what those complicated numbers mean (ex. 205/45x17...205 being the width, 45 being the percent ratio of the sidewall to the width, and 17 being the rim size) but i dont quite grasp what would be best for those rims, handling in summer weather wise.

could i get some help on what width i would need for the 7 inch base of the rim?
any help is appreciated

stock for the car was 215/45r17 I think I would recommend 225/45r17 because better options are available 205/45r17 is two small

my dad got his tires from tirerack, they were great, could also go to discount tire, or NTB.
