They will mount on the wheels okay (my other car has 225/45s on a 17x7 wheel). The only thing you'll contend with is speedo error (it will read slightly slower than what you are travelling at) and the odometer (it will show less mileage than true).
There might be some rub on the fenders during hard cornering but 5mm extra on each side of the wheel shouldn't be cause for concern IMHO.
