Tire size question for Auto X

I want to stay with street tires and have decided to get the Azenis sports. I am torn between the
1) 225/45 size on OEM 17" sports package rims.
2) 245/45 size on the same rims

Question 1. Anyone tried 245/45 Azenis sports all round on OEM rims? Will they fit?
Question 2. I know I'll get 4% higher gearing with the 245/45-17s, but at same time I would gain 8% contact patch. Which do you think is more important, the 4% gearing ratio or the 8% increase in contact patch?

Thanks in advance!!
