Considering neither Tire Rack or Discount tire even have a tire listed in the 275/45-17 size you are going to have extremely limited options if any at all.

That being said the recommended minimum rim width for a 275/45 in other rim diameters is 8.5", if you go to a 275/40 tire the minimum width is 9". You can lijely get away with a rim that is a 1/2" narrower than the recommendation but any more with such a low profile tire you are going to have issues with the tire seating properly not to mention you will have less performance than if you chose a narrower tire that is appropriate for the rim width.
