Default 245-45-17 on 17x8.5 do they fit an STI with TEIN FLEX coilovers?

We just purchased SSR COMP 17x8.5 and went with 245-45-17 Hoosiers.
Do these fit? Are they gonna rub with the coilovers?

We already ran 235-30-18 and rubbed slightly but with the fender only.

2004 sti, cusco zero2r's, rota torque 17x8 rims with 245/45-17 v700 victoracers. i currently run this setup, but do not recommend it because even with the sti's good gearing, these tires are just too tall and really slow the car down, not to mention add ride height. i am going to the more proper sized 245/40-17 ecstas.
