Question How Will They Look?

Does anyone know how 245/40-17 and 17x9 will look on the cobalt, because im thinking about buying them but want opinions, will there be any stretch and if so how much, and about how far will the tires and wheels stick out past the fenders..?

I assume you're buying new wheels. If this is the case you should see an offset number in the description.

What website are you using? You should be able to easily find that out with their package finder. You probably will run into problems with the 245, I believe 225 is max without modification.

The fenders won't be your problem - it'll hit the strut.

I've seen people get 245s under there on 18" rims...but you gotta have the right offset. And are you lowered too?
