Brent, its not recommended, but I have been thinking of trying it on my 17X8 bullitts too man, if I do, I will send you pics, some say it will work, some say it won't, some say it will but you won't get as much tire foot print on the road as with 245/45s. I may try it and if I don't like the results I might get wider rear rims.

The possible draw back is that they may bow out in the middle, I have had this happen in the past, what I did in the past was run a little lower pressure in the rear tires, worked ok.

Will do, I may just let the tire place mount one of them, if I don't like how it looks I won't go for it at all. At any rate I will let you know my opinion.

they aren't much wider than the 245's, it's nothing extreme, just the max you can go on a 8" wheel. thousands of people have done this before, nothing bad happens i assure you.

v6powerstang, yours is the best report on it I have heard yet, I hope you are right, I have seen some people that were very negative indeed on the prospects, I thought personally it would work but might be stretching it just a little bit, so I asked around on 3.8 while the site was down, and that is kind of stuff I got there.

Hey Jeff (KrazyPony98) has them. They look good on his car. You would probably lose some cornering performance with all the rubber but I would think it would be minimal

Corey, Cool, and they don't bow out in the middle of the tread, thats great, is he using them all the way around or just on the rear?

all the way around it is cheaper that way. But he did say he would go to 245 45 17 up front when he needs tires again.
