Re: Stock tire size for 00 gt wheels?
245/45/17s were the factory size for the 17x8 rims that came on those cars. A 225 will be to narrow and wont look right. it also wont protect the rims from curb rash. A 245 is a bit to narrow generally for an 8 inch wide rims, but it works. I like 255's for a touch more protection for the rims.
For comparision 25.4mm is an inch so 245 to 225 is 20mm, so about an inch~ and thats side to side so half an inch shorter on each side of the rim compared to a 245/45/17.
The 225 would need to be a 225/50/17 to keep the same height
