Default 07 to 08 front bumber convertion possible?

Hi guy, I'd your opinion on the project that I have. I want to change the front bumber on my 2007 9-3 for more agressive 2008 front bumper. I did some research and saw that to do this I'd need to change: Bumper but also Rh/LH exterior fenders, hood and headlights. Aside from that is the installation the same? Will I have any issue with the assembly? Has anyone done this kind of project before? If so how did it go?
I also have a second question: do you guys think that 245/70/r16 summer tires fit on my car? I've been driving around in 205/55/r16

nope x 2 for bumper and tires. Equally far out of touch.

Hey guys, a body question again, are the rear fenders removable? I'm going to change the front ones and was thinking about doing the rear one too because they have a little bit of rust on them. Is it possible to remove de rear fenders I can't find a "how to" online

They are welded to the car and go all the way up to A-pillars. No
