245's will fit as well. 255's might be a little tight, but it could definitely be done if you had a 45 series (or larger) sidewall.

i have had 17x7.5 for a long time and i have run 235/40's on them without issue

i wouldnt run 245/40's on them as the sidewalls start to bulge and that isnt good for performance
