Eider tires:

If your original size is 225/65R17 then 245/75R17 does not seem to be a good choice.

As a quick rule of thumb, if one of the numbers in a tire's size increases, one of the other numbers should decrease. In your case there are two number which increase.

The reason behind this is that we normally try to keep the overall operating diameter of a tire the same, no matter what the width or sidewall height becomes.

See our Tire Size Calculatorto get the precise sizes that would work in your situation.
