Default 245/45 17 question

I've got an '05 wrx with NO suspension change over stock set up. I currently run 225/45 17 RT-615's in the summer (love the tires!). My wheels are PIAA 17's with a 7.5 rim. Question is, anyone running a 245/45 17 RT-615 with my stock set up? Will they fit with no modification, fender roll for example? Please, only people that have actually done this set up. Otherwise I'm spending money on a guess. I don't want to change the suspension because I travel over lots of dirt roads in Vermont, need the clearance. Thanks! Any pictures would be great. Dave.

i'm not sure if they'll fit without rubbing but falken says that size is approved to fit on a 7.5" wide rim.

i'd also be worried about rubbing when turning lock to lock.

That's what I was thinking too. My current set up (225/45's) work fine but turn the wheels full and it starts to get a bit snug. Yes, I did see that Falken approved the 245/45 tire for my 7.5 rim, just wanted to know if anyone runs that setup? Thanks.
