Nope, tires are too tall and wide for the front and just plain too tall for the rear. In 17s, generally you're looking for 205(215)/40 fronts, 235(245)/40 rears, MKIIs shipped with staggered wheels and tires.

LJ, here is an idea, talk to your buddy and see if he lets you try them on before you buy them. Like he said, those sizes are definatelly too big for the front.

Im also running 17x8 offset 35 all around with 235-45-17 in the rears and it fit just fine. I try running 45 in the front but it rubs when you hit bumps so i went with 40 in the front, here is a picture of my car with 235-45-17 in the rear......hope that helps....
