215/45/17 is a common fiat/alfa size tyre and is what came on Stilo's with 17" rims. 205/40 will increase your acceleration, and make your speedo read quicker meaning you clock up the miles more. I would go 215/45.
Thanks Marshall147 thanked for this post

It's the usual balance between ride and handling. 40 profile tyres will give you better grip in corners than 45 (less tyre wall deformation) but the downside is poorer ride quality, as the stiffer sidewalls don't absorb bumps so well.

Sorry yeah theres a few variations, seen some people going with 205 or 225 with different side wall sizes but 215/45/17 is the standard Stilo size
