No, 245 is too wide for a skinny 7.5" wide rim. 235mm is the theoretical maximum front tyre width.

Cheers Marco, so would you leave the 225s on but obviously it would have the wider track from the new arms? Many thanks

I bought wider alloys to run 245mm front tyres, the stock wheels are complete crap anyway.
