Default Anybody run 235/45/17 on stock 09 wrx wheels?

I'd like to do this if possible. I'm aware most tires' spec sheets (as listed on Tirerack) do not recommend 235/45/17 on a 7" wide wheel, but I'm curious if anyone has done it and how it's worked out.
Thanks for any input from those who have done this.

a 235/45/17 tire should not fit on a 7" wide rim.

rim has to be at least 7.5" wide for that tire size.
