In terms of the wheels themselves, the rear will fit no problem, fronts may need a small (3mm or 5mm) spacer. If you're running camber washers the spacer (5mm) is probably going to be needed since the wheel/tire (245/40 is a tall tire) ET47 will rub. If you're running coils, it's also a good bet you'll need spacers to clear the strut. I'd just run a 5mm spacer because I wouldn't want to reduce the overall track of the front vs. stock.

You can run those type/size tires on the stock sized rims. The Hack and others do. Sidewall is stiff enough (unlike street tires such as the PSS) where you won't see negative results from using the bottom of the recommended rim size range. Of course, running that size tire on a 8.5" or 9" wheel would be better, but if you already have the wheels.
