Chili, the difference between 245 45 16 and 225 50 16 is about 1/4" total, that's 1/8" of tire on each side of the wheel. The average height of a 245 45 tire is 24.6 while the height of a 225 50 is 24.9. You won't see much difference. You'd be better off trying a different brand of tire for one that looked bigger.

Granted chrome fuchs aren't the best to have, and unless you have a turbo having the 245's on the back will increase the understeer, so going to 8's is probably a good idea.
