Rim/tire size question


First ever post!

A lot happened this week - just bought my first ever Mercedes wagon - E350 2008 - I live in Canada and will need winter tires/rims.

The wagon is fitted with 8J x 17 H2 rims with 245/45 R17 95H tires.

There is a set of 7 1/2 J x 17 H2 Mercedes Monobloc rims with 225/45/17 winter tires for sale (that I can afford).

Will these work? I cannot afford a dealer provided set but want to try and stay with Mercedes.

Any advice is gratefully received.

Your owners manual lists approved sizes for winter tires.
