Default another: would this tire rub on my current setup

I have got a 03 wrx with Eibach prokit and AGX. I'm running 17x8 rims 5x100 with a 46mm offset. I'm looking to fit 245/40/17 Falken ziex ze-912's.
The tires have a 9.7" sectional width with a tread width of 8.7"


With fender rolling, would i be able to tug these tires? how about the spring side, would it rub there?

Should i be worried about anything else?

thanks a bunch

I have the exact same springs/struts you are running and was looking at what tires to put on a 17x8 +45 wheel.

From the reading that I have done on here (I still haven't bought anything yet) it sounds like 245/40 will rub without rolling the fenders, and that maybe a better option would be a 235/40 for a 17" wheel and the springs/struts that you and I are running.

But if someone running this setup could comment that would be great, as I am curious as well.

I know for a fact that they would rub since i had some 225s and those were cutting it pretty close. i'm curious if i can fit it with fender rolling and wondering if it would rub on the strut.

thanks
