correction: your 245/*40*s have only 98mm sidewall. Too short a tire. Buy either a 255/40 or a 225/25.
Which brings up something separate... unsprung weight. 255s look better, and usually handle better, but it's heavier and might be a bit much tire for 240 horses to spin freely. I tend to notice my car is more eager to accelerate with the winter tires on because they weigh less and have less rotating mass.
But I digress. If I had 17s, I'd have 255s.
