<strong>I don't think you can safely fit 225/45 x 17 tyres on the standard Alfa 7 x 17 wheels IMO.
The 215/45 tyre is already very close to the suspension strut at the top inside edge of the tyre.
If you fit wheels with an offset of 35mm instead of the standard 40.5 mm then you can fit 225/45 tyres and there should be no problem with arch rubbing.
