Correct wheel size

Re: Correct wheel size

I have 245 45 on my fronts, because when we get to 9" wheels and being lowered some people have rubbing issues on the front. I am slammed to the ground and have no rubbing issues with a 245 45 17 and i also have my front sway bar removed too.

Re: Correct wheel size

for a 9in wide rim you need to go with a 275/40/17 any more narrow you are asking for trouble, any more narrow than 265 it will look stretched and bad

for 10 wide go with a 295 wide tire, dont buy wide rims if you dont plan to run the correct tire size.
