Hello - I'm Arby1028 and frequent bimmerforums.com I did a google search about 225/45/17 tires fitting on 17X7 wheels and found a post on your site that gave me the exact info I was looking for. Thanks to Pavia (corrected!) for the post, info and pictures.
I drive a black 2002 330i that is ever so slightly modded. Several of the guys over at bimmerforums drive Subarus (including one of the moderators). We have a very high level of respect for Subarus.
PS: How is the Off Topic section on your site?
