Default Wheel Question from Newbie - 16" to 17"

Hello Saab friends. We have a wonderful 2011 9-3 SportCombi. We purchased it "new" in 2013 after the bankruptcy when they were freed up for sale as used cars. The 16" rims have always looked too small for me and the Aero models much more sporty with the 17's.

I want to replace the 16" 68260 with the 17" Aero wheel ALU50 that I see on Allfactory. Are there any issues with fit or clearance? Thanks!

225/45/17 will fit and cause no issues.

Great. I will check my tire/wheel comparison guide to see what that does to my odometer/speedometer.
