Hey guys, my tyres are due for replacement but I'd like to get something a bit wider than stock.

Does anyone know what's the widest tyres that can fit on the 17" OEM wheels?

I would think you can go 2 a 235/45r17, even a 245/65r17, someone correct me if im wrong.

235/45-17 is too short. Speedo and gearing would be way off. Did you mean 235/65-17? 245/65-17 is a big tire, but it should fit. If you want a little wider, and stay close to factory height, you could go 235/65-17 (slightly taller than stock) or 235/60-17 (slightly shorter than stock). If you want wider again go 245/60-17 (almost exactly same tire height, but not a lot of options in this size), or 245/65-17 which would be as far away from factory spec as I would go.

Check out this link to play around with sizes, but be aware that it's more of a general rule of thumb, than RAV4 specific.
