yeah it could fit but it wont be happy about it. I would put the +38 in the rear with normal camber and the +22 in the front with lots of camber. It would look hot and would be as flush as the zerosports 06/07

If you don't want to do some modification to the alignment & fenders, no, it won't fit. And a 245 on 9.5" rim?

You're a newb, so let's just say DON'T get them. They won't fit. Look for wheels that have all the same offset, and are somewhere in the +40 to +50 range, depending on width.

not a newb... this is my second sti so been around for a long time but just always went for performance first and not too much on wheels.... bit of help would be nice.

Most 245's (especially 245/40's) are only spec'd up to a 9" wheel. You would need at least 255's, unless you really want to go for the stretched look and don't care too much about the performance of the tire.

They won't fit because the offset is too low, especially the +22, and they're too wide. This is if you want to just bolt them on the car right now. You could get them to fit if you wanted to run a lot of negative camber (will effect the handling and tire wear), and do some major fender rolling/pulling. A 245/40-17 tire is really not wide enough for a 9.5" wide rim. If you want to run a 245 get an 8" or 8.5" wide rim, and the thinner wheels will be lighter too. And you really want all 4 wheels to be the same offset.
