NO! This is not an acceptable swap. The 245/65-17 is 6.91% (2") larger in overall diameter. It is never acceptable to go over or under 3% of the OEM size. This will adversely effect handling, stopping, performance, and fuel mileage. However a 205/65-17 would be an acceptable swap. I would advise you to stick with the OEM size.
