Default 17x9 +45 245/40/17 on rce yellows?

Hey guys I'm sure it's here somewhere but I can't find it, but I was wondering if I'd be able to fit 17x9 +45 245/40/17 on rce yellows on my 06 Sti without having to do any fender mods. Any help would greatly be appreciated. Otherwise I'll just have to go 17x8 + 45 since that's the only sizing they offer, but was hoping to fit a bigger wheel.
Thanks

I run 17x9 +45 with 255/40-17 and a very slight rear roll without issues. With the smaller tire you should be fine.

You should be fine. If anything a slight roll and some negative camber will do you just fine. You also will want to make sure that they fit over the brembos. Im trying to find a reasonably priced wheel that can double for track/autox duty and street and im having a hard time finding those.

Right. Make sure they'll clear the brakes. What wheels are you looking at?
