Re: Can I Make It Work? 17x8" Issue
Your 4" backspacing is really the issue here, just how bad are the 245/45's rubbing? Better shocks might help and then you can get button head Allen bolts to replace the upper most fender bolts and have some negative camber dialed into your alignment.
The 205/40 really shouldn't be put on a 8" wheel... The max recomended size is 7.5" so you can imagine the wheels rim is going to really be sticking out beyond the sidewall.
Then the 205/40 is only 23.5" tall, your 245/45 is 25.7" tall. Even though you will probably win the rubbing battle it's going to look rather out of place...
A 225/45 would fit nice on an 8" wheel, be 25" tall and .7 narrower in the section width. It is a little smaller all the way around but won't look out of place replacing a 245/45. Along with the tips I gave above I bet this would resolve your rubbing.
