Default Would a 255/45/18 tire work on an 08 STI wheel?

I have a Subaru SVX that was off the road for a while and I put a lot of money into it to restore and modify it. I bought a set of 08 STI wheels. I found a great deal on a set of 225/35/18 Proxy TR1s. I take the car in for inspection and to have the new tires mounted and he won't put them on an inspect it because he says they stretch, which is bull****, but anyways, so I need something to put on these rims to get it past inspection. The 16" OEM tires on it dry rotted so I can't use those and I can't use the ones I bought and it's sitting at his place. It sucks.

I am looking for correct 245/40/18 sets or close but can't find cheap ones to get a sticker on this thing. I made a thread on here looking to trade the Toyos as well to try and get something but this is something I need in the next couple days so I am trying for a quick fix. I found a set of 255/45/18 that are good enough for inspection. My question is will these fit on the 18" 08 STI wheels? These would be a temporary solution but I need to b creative here as I already overspent on getting it back on the road and new tires are simply not an option right now.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

they will work, increase in overall diameter which will affect speedo, but shouldnt matter too much since its temporary...

The speedo is kinda messed up anyways as I have a 4.44 trans in it and that is a side effect of it.
