    I wouldn't run those wheels in the first place because they are too narrow. If you already have them then just run 245/45/17. Anything wider isn't going to be recommended.

    7.5 is usually the minimum wheel width recommended by tire manufactures for 245's. 245's would be fine.

    100% sure. Summit Racing is one thats good to show tire manufacturers specs on minimum and maximum wheel widths for the tire. Everyone I looked at showed 7.5 minimum and 9.0 maximum.
