Another tire fitment question...

Postby ctompkins5 » Wed Sep 08, 2010 11:50 am

I am looking at getting some new all season tires for the winter driving months and I am considering the Toyo Extensa HP in 225/45/17 to go on my GTC01 17x8 et48. I am considering this tire because the outside diameter is 24.9 inches vs. the 25.1 o/d of most other 225/45 series tires and since I am lowered on the eibach pro kit springs I am worried about going too tall. The fenders are rolled for the 235 R1R tires I run in the summer, so width is not an issue but I just wanted to know if the 45 series will be too tall.

Thanks

I'm currently running 205/50R17s during the winter without any problems. Therefore any 225/45 tire should fit :mrgreen:
