Question Widest tire on non-M e46?

Hey everybody, I'm looking at getting new tires and have been getting a bit of a run-around on what I should have and what I can get.

I have a 2000 BMW 323ci and it came with the optional 17" BMW wheels. The current tires are 215/45/17.

Now I've been told by a BMW shop that I should have 225/45/17 tires on there which should be a factory setup for a 17" bmw rims. Does this sound correct?

Also, I'd like to know if I should add maybe a bit wider tires in the rear or all around? I'd like to have a thicker tire for more grip but wouldn't like to have any problems rubbing.

Any ideas?
thank you
