I would go on tirerack.com and check what your stock size tire diameter is and compare it to the 245/40/17's that you want to run. I recommend the Kumho ecsta 4x! I have those tires, they are quite amazing.

i think you just might. not 100% because i own a sedan and i would rub but coupes are more forgiving with lower offsets so you might be able to get away with it since you're not planning to be slammed.

Yes you will have fitment issues if you run the 245, you will need to roll the fronts and move the fender liner above the tabs. The rear should be rolled too. 235/45 are considerably cheaper than 245/40. Id go 235 because for the same price you can get much better tires. Also less work since it would be a tiny bit stretched. 245's are close to square on a 8.5.

Well I can get a set of 245/40 falkens for about 380$ which is a good deal. I'm planning on getting the rears rolled and I can roll the front on my own since there already partially rolled from the factory and thinner metal.

Good deal! You're probably going to need to tuck the front fender liner or you might rub in the front.

The DWS are a bit wide in my experience, so you may not stretch the tire at all.

They are, the casings on the DWS and DW Continental tires are beefy compared to it's competitors. At my shop we have a 2002 Camaro SLP SS 35th Anniversary Edition with 275/40 R17 Continental ExtremeContact DWs all around and they look wider than any other 275/40 R17 tire we carry. Still, awesome tires.
