Tire upgrade

Chicago pot hole just ruined my new left front and left rear stock tires. I replaced all four tires with Faulkin Azenis ST115. 225/45ZR-17
I plan on running some autocross events and a Track Day at Elk Hart Lake.
Will i have any rubbing issues? I can not tell now with all the ice and snow on the ground. The Discount Tire checked them on the rack and said they should be ok.

What's your suspension setup? I can see 225's rubbing if you're lowered with soft springs.

225's should be fine.

I run them all the time at the track without issue except in the banking. Never at an AX
