    itll be fine..

    alot of people on here are running with 275's up front and up to 315's and 335's out back.. and those are 17 and 18 inchers..

    im running a 245 front on a 18x9 and a 285 out back with a 18x10 wheel. youll be fine with a 245 on a 16 x 8? trust me.

    don't waist your time on the 16's. save a little more cash and buy some new wheels for that stang! you can get wheel and tire deals for a grand or under on ebay if you look
