Will 225 65 fit on 2004 ford focus zx3?

I have a 2004 ford focus zx3 it has the stock rims from an svt and no suspension mods. Will these tires fit? Does anybody know? I currently have 225 45 17 tires on their right now. I think they might rub on the inner fender, but im not sure. Let me know, Thanks

25" is about the tallest tire you can/ want to do on a 1st gen. you're already there with what you have. a 225/65/17 is 26.4" tall. not gonna work

I run 235/50/17 on my Mk3, and it's only about an inch of gap. These are more than likely going to run vertically, especially since the Mk1 probably has a smaller wheel arch than the Mk3s. It looks like it's a better tire for an suv/crossover.

Biggest size I saw was 225 60 17 on site I was using. If they're free tires you got, try selling them or swapping with someone. I would strongly advise against 225 65 17 unless you want a 4x4 show car.
