    Hello,

    Recently I buy a set of near new tire Good Year Eagle F1 (size 245/45/17), I was thinking to buy new wheels, I have a deal on this models in size 17 x 9 :

    [​IMG]

    My question is ; 17 x 9 is it to large for 245/45/17 in front ?

    Is it better to get a set of 17 x 8 ?

    Thank's

    F.

    your car is a 94-98 correct?

    You're better off with 8-8.5 but 9 would be kind of fine unless you're lowering the car, then you're going to need C/C plates
