It would fit.

May I ask why? That's a very tall front tire - 245 on an 8" rim its gonna look bloated

Not only bloated, he's running the risk of rubbing against the inner fender liner at full turn and having the speedometer slightly off.

I would recommend using a 245/35/18 tire in order to be closer to the stock tire diameter. You'll have no rubbing issues with this setup.

Any reason you want a square setup? Stock sizes, even with those f-sport rims, are 225/40r18 and 255/40r18.

I believe 245's will rub a bit in the front when you have the wheel turned all the way to the left or to the right.
