Rear should fit with the quads removed. Fronts will fit but are probably gonna rub when turned all the way over.

245 on a 9" rim is to small... I mean it fits, but its going to look funny.

Id say yes you will prally have to work the inside of the fenders and all depending on if its lowered or not. the lower you are, the most likely it wont fit.

245s fit 9" wheels like a glove.... Not stretched and not bulging over the edges.

If you're lowered anything over a 245 in the front will rub the fender more than likely. I ran 235s in the front lowered 2.25" with 0 rubbing issues and running 245s now and the only time they rub is when I hit a decent size bump.

the 245 I had and have seen fit ideally on a 8" wheel. I wouldnt run anything less than a 255-265 on a 9" wheel

These fit perfect on mine, though I will be putting 275 on the back when I get a chance.
