View Full Version : Best tires 17x8

05-11-2004, 10:10 PM
I'm getting some 17x8 Cobra R's and I was wondering what kind of tires would fit and what anybody who is running a similar combo has or would suggest. I'm looking for some 235-245/255+/17. Thanks

No such tire..............

Go with 245/45/17's or 255/45/17's. I'm sure you could get way with 275/40/17's in back if you want, in that case put 245/45/17's in front to match.

Go with some BFGs or Kumos.

255-45-17 is about the widest that should be mounted to 8" wheels. I'd recommend either that size, or 245-50-17. The 255-45 will be about 1/2" shorter than stock, the 245-50 will be almost identical diameter.

Sorry I made a typo, they are 17x9 rims and I was wondering also what tires in specific anybody else was running, where they got them, and for how much.

if they are 17x9 go with 275's out back, but up front that may be too wide and may rub when turning, so I would stay 245 in the front.
