245/45/17 on 17x9 pics

I'm looking at running this combination on my car but unsure if the tire is big enough. if you have this set up on your car can I see some pics?

I would be too. Minimum width for 9" is 255 imo. And that feels loose. I would be careful.

If DaBlueDude says 255's are the minimum width then a big tire shop might not want to install them. You could call ahead and ask. I think they would be fine.

I have 17x9 wheels with 275/40 rears and 245/45 up front. They will fit fine and work fine.

I ran 17/9s with a 245/45 on front and a 275 on back. They fit okay but the rims are exposed for curbs
