Are you going to mount them on the stock wheels? They should fit and work fine, the wheels will just stick out a little past the tire.

I don't imagine it's dangerous, but they're gonna be taller than stock and skinnier than stock. It'll look funny. Those tires belong on a big sedan or something. 245/45-17's are actually not a very expensive tire. Just get the right size.

The maximum rim width for a 235/55 17" tire is 8.5" or one half inch wider than OEM, so it is "safe to mount them on factory wheels.
