I'm trying to upgrade to 17" wheels for my LX, but still need to get tires that will fit. When I went to a tire shop, they said that I needed 225/45/17 tires (stock tires show 225/45/16) but tirerack says it's size 215/45/17... anyone know anything about this?

Thanks!

If you are going from 16" Lx steel wheels to 17" wheels, you are going to need tires for 17 inch wheels. 215/45/17 and 225/45/17 will both fit, but 215/45/17 is "stock" size for a civic. Stock LX tire size is 205/55/16, but there is no way those will fit on your new 17 inch rims.
