Check the fitment guide for the width of the rims. The 235 may rub. The awd tranny has less space in the wheel well compared to the RWD models.

According to our fitment information, 235/45R-17 tires should work on your application without issue. Just make sure you're installing this size tire on all 4 corners.

The tire diameters are very aggressive. Compared to the factory staggered sizes, your current sizes are approximately 1.5" taller. You'll likely need to change the tire sizes to fix the rubbing.

Are you running aftermarket wheels? If so, what are the dimensions (width/offset)?
