17 inches Tire

I have just got a 17inches rim on my 1994 LS Legend with215/45/17 tires, but i don't like how it drives on a bumpy road- it makes my shocks look ineffective and tends to make one lose control of the vehicle. Please, what is the best tire size to use with this kind of alloy rim to provide comfortable ride on all terrain.

Taller side wall increases comfort...usually. Sometimes not. High performance tires (not necessarilly low-profile) tires have stiff sidewalls which decreases ride comfort...usually.

How much do your rims weigh? Heavy rims (> 20 lb/ 9.5 kg) require stiffer shocks to properly control wheel movement.

How old are your shocks? What brand/type shocks are installed?

Stock springs?

Car and Driver performed a tire comparison of 225/45-17 tires two years ago and it's still available on their web site. Give it a read.
