usually you can go down or up one tire width on the same rim

Is it that the tires are too tall? It might be a matter of the wheels being the wrong offset.

If they're just too tall, you can also go to a 205/45/17 if you don't want the ride of a thinner sidewall.

Stock height? Lowered (how much)?

Where/when is it rubbing? Straight over bumps? Turning over bumps? On the inside/ outside of tire?

i was also wondering how you can put 40w and 45w on the same rim?... if it would make that much of a diff to actually rub

40 and 45 are the aspect ratios treadwidth/sidewall height in percentage .

so that doesn't affect fitting on the rim,check the tire manufactures website for what beadwidth(RIM) an individual tire can be mounted to.
