20" tire size

today i bought a set of brand new 20" rims for my "04 GC"...but i don't know which tire size i'm going to buy, i searched and i found that i can go for: 275/40/20 or 275/45/20 (i don't want a skinny tire but also i don't want a fat tire so which it's better 40 or 45?)

which is the most popular tire size?, and can someone post some pics of their GC with 20" wheels and their tire size, just to give me an idea on how it looks, thanks!!
