 Not quite.  If you do the math, where Height=((225x0.50x2)/25.4)+16 you 
 get:
 225/50/16 = 24.86"
 245/45/17 = 25.68"

Ken Schultz had a set of the 17X8 95 GT wheels on his 86 SVO with a 245/45 17"
tire, they fit but the front tires rubbed the front bumper cover when you
turned the wheel. I was talking with Lee Clary about this and he said you
needed to go to a 235/40 or 245/40 17 in order to have the clearance on the
front.
