Can I run 245 tires on a 7" wide wheel?

I have 215/45/17 on there now. Will 245s fit?

On 245/45/17 probably but with 245/40/17 which will be closer to the right size probably not. Most tires recommend 8" and up for 245. Best bet is to look it up

why would you do such a thing?

that'll look ugly as hell, even if it fits which I doubt it will.


245 is a good size on a 8.5".....

245 will be insanely beefy and truck like if they even fit properly. Stick to 205-215-225 width.

not true.

i'm running 245/45/17 on a 17x8.

if you're slammed, you can't even tell whether or not they look beefy.

they fit fine. I'm tucking them atm.
