Will 245/40/17 be ok on a stock 07' 335xi

I need to replace my tires and want to know if 245's will rub at all on a stock setup? Anyone else running 245's on a 335 or 335xi?
Thanks

Why are you changing tire sizes? What do you expect to gain?

More looks than anything. I guess 2 centimeters in width isn't all that great though or even noticeable.
I also notice that my speedometer seems to be 3 miles per hour faster than what it is. Hoping going to a 40 will offset that a bit? Could I be wrong?

Well I'm not sure if it will rub but if I had to guess I would say it's ok, especially on an xdrive. But wait till someone else comments

As to the speed issue...the car is programmed with a speed correction that is 3-5% faster than your actual speed. This can be coded off
