they should fit pretty good.. if you are lowered there is a pretty good chance you might run around corners... this being of course in the front of your car when you turn.. hope that helps

no they will not...you said your rim is 17x8 and those tires are 245's? Those tires are too wide for the rim, you need 225/40/17ZR....

i was thinking about getting tokico shocks and springs. the suspension would be stiffer, but the ride height would be dropped 1.25". is that too much of a drop?

dont mean to jack the thread, but whats the widest tire i can run on an 18inch wheel before running into problems? i'm talking stock height and suspension, front and rear. i'm getting 18's soon and want some big tires. i'll roll the fenders if need be as well.

WTF? I rub badly and all i have is 17" countors. just be careful what you get. i got to get the fenders rolled and honestly I don't know if that will give me enough space.

AMG can't build an NA engine that can compete with M engines, so they stick in a supercharger and say their cars are faster. BMW could simply do the same, but they don't out of principle.</span>

Redlined, what are is the offset on those wheels, that might be your problem because I have 18's all around and no rubbing what so ever.
