Guess it's off to search, to figure out if a 225/45/17 will fit inside an R53 without too much rubbing.

When you push the limits of tire/wheel fitment, then you really have to do your homework. There's answers to your questions all over this forum if you look around. Whether it fits will depend on alot of things like the type/manufacturer of tire you use (because they vary in actual size). I'd venture to say that size will not fit without help (off road stance, removing wheel well liners, trimming fender arches, more camber, etc...). Go lower aspect ratio (40 series) at least.
