I don't have a Viggen, so can't help you with the tire questions... But for all things performance related, www.genuinesaab.com is where it's at.

no not over the edge its pretty much straight, i would not run them again because i plan on lowering the car. i am almost certaing u wouldn't rub with the 235's. the stock vig wheel is 7.5 in wide, min for 245 is 7.5.

also you have to think that when you ran the 245 40 before that was on a 18 that must have been alot taller than a stock tire. my tires dont hit the fender it hits the plastic fender well
