Default Will a 16x9 wheel fit on the front w/245 tire

Have looked through several 968 and 944 wheel threads and haven't come up with an answer. Assuming a pretty high offset, say 65 mm, would such a wheel (and 245/45/16 tire) fit on the front?

I have forged clubsport 16"x9" wheels that have a et of 60 on the front of my race car with stock fenders. It works with M030 springs and camber plates to dial in -2 on plates and -1 on spindles for around -3 front give or take a 1/4 deg no rubbing on either side but you do have to dial in any rubbing on batwing/spoiler and lower fender liner in tight turns! My car is lowered about 2" from stock good luck

Thanks, that is helpful, what size (section width) tire?

Don't want to remove fender liners.
