NO!!!... WAY too wide...and too tall, too...unless you roll/cut the fenders and then they are a real wide tire for their 'size'....

I don't know if rolling will even fix it... I can't say for certain, but 245/45/17 is much wider than stock and significantly larger in diameter, bringing it closer in more than one direction to pretty much every stationary part in the wheel well...

The kumhos may actually fit depending on the wheel size and offset. Not my first choice though.

245/45-17 is a taller tire (diameter) than stock and would kill acelleration. A better fit (stock diameter) would be 245/40-17... but the Azenis don't come in that size.
