245 on 17x8?

I've searched everywhere, but cant find anything on it. Right now im running 17x7.5's with 225's, and it rubs on hard bumps (lowered on h&r springs). I think with some camber and fender rolling combined with the correct offset it could work. Anyone seen it been done or would I be the guinea pig? Also, does anyone know of any companies that make wide front fenders for our cars? Thanks in advance for the input

Ford made wide front fenders for the euro RS. They bolt right on but are probably hard to find by now

You would probably get more input in the Wheels, Tires, Brakes & Suspension section.
