    Will my stock 245/45/17 tsize fit on a 9" rim? Or will it look too tuner? Pics if you have em, thanks. By the way the rims are the 04 Cobra wheels 17x9.

    Personally id go 255 at the smallest, they should fit though. 265s fit PERFECT on a 9" rim.

    Yeah, I want 255 front and 275 rear, but want my 245's to last another season atleast. As long as they fit I'll be happy.
