Welcome! The 215/45R/17 is the exact wheel/tire size of the Elantra Limited's. Just watch your wheel offset and bore size. Unless you have OEM 17" alloys to put on her.
Prepare to sacrifice a little ride quality with the narrower sidewalls. Not as much flex, not as forgiving on bumps and concrete road expansion joints as those you'll get as original equipment. And those sidewalls compensate for speedometer accuracy, I THINK! Might be wrong.
Search this forum. There are more wheel/tire mods than you can shake a stick at.
And your English is fantastic.
One thing I DO like about the low profile tires, i.e. 215/45R/17, is its protruding ridge alongside the tire's sidewall near the bead. This protrusion acts as an "early warning indicator" helping you "feel" the tire rubbing alongside a curb when parking. That little feature will save your rims from curb rash!
And if there is one thing I hate, it's curb rash!
