My AU has stock XR6 16" rims, That's the standard tyre size on them. Why are you worried about 45's being too low? Ride factor? There's still plenty of rubber on a 45, it's only a cm less than your current rubber...

the rolling radius will be under size and the load rating will most likely be to low aswell.
