235/45/17 fit on a viggen with 17x8's?

i really want more sidewall to protect my wheels and i am curious if these will rub. They are only 1/10th or 2/10th's bigger diameter than 225/40/18 which is common on 9-3's with 18s. Any help would be appreciated

i already orderd 225/45/17....those were the biggest sidewalls that fit the 9-3s i think. I was gonna go 235/40/17 but the sidewall is a litlle smaller than the 215/45. They are BFGoodrich T/A KDW

People might think they look stupid...but i really dont care. i think they look cool but the main reason i got them is cause they have 300 treadwear rating, and they got amazing reviews, and price of course.
