http://www.miata.net/garage/tirecalc.html - great resource

LOL, come on now. That new tire size would be 1.7" taller than the stock tires, and result in your speedo/odo being about 7% off. That's way too much; as a rule of thumb, keep it within 3%.

And also, considering the tires would be both FAR taller and FAR wider than stock, I doubt they would fit without any rubbing, even if you were OK with the massive speedo inaccuracy explained above.

Elantras are not meant to roll on 18" wheels w/ 245s. Get some 16s or 17s with tires reasonably close to the OE rolling diameter.
