The tires are what really matter for fitment in the fender.

Your current setup is 225/45 R17, meaning 25" diameter and 8.9" wide.

Your potential purchase is 215/40 R17, meaning 23.8" diameter and 8.5" wide.

The tires and wheels you'd like to pick up are shorter, meaning you won't have any fitment issues with the fenderwell, and narrower, meaning you shouldn't hit anything while turning lock-to-lock.

We'll probably need backspacing information to determine if they'll collide with brake rotors or caliper, but really, 0.6" ((25-23.8)/2) on each side really shouldn't hit anything back there if the brake setup is stock.
