Newbie help on Winter Tires

hey The dealer has suggested 205/55R16 but can i put a set of 245/45 R 17 on the vehicle..I live in IOWA and it gets pretty heavy snowfall so i have heard. I may mostly drive 10 miles a day during winter.

From what i understand from the calculator from the forum " 9mm LESS clearance on the strut side, and the outside edge of the wheel will EXTEND an extra 3mm" is this a major difference and will i run into any issues...?

Forgive for my dumb questions...
