    275/40/17s are gonna be the ideal fit..you can get 285s, but i wouldnt go any higher than that...and yes, some people will tell you that you can put on 315s, but they dont fit the rims correctly.

    And im with scarface, BFG FTMFW. ^-^

    go with a 275/40zr17. it will set 25.7 inches tall(just like the factory 245/45zr17). BfGoodrich makes the best tire. They do wear out quick though. I have never ran nittos but i know alot of people have them for the street and love them. they say they suck at the track though.
