Impreza GC8 What mods to do to fit wider tires...

I am planning to put 245/40-17 tires on 17'"- 8'' wheels with 45+ offset on a 2000 2.5RS Impreza Coupe. I know it can be done but with some minor modifications. My question is does anyone know what modifications will i need to make in order to fit them properly without any clearance problems?
