    Tire size

    Anyone running 255/45 r17s? I'm wondering if the side wall will look to short. I know stock diameter is 26.6 inches and the 255/45 r17s would only be 26 inches.

    A little thicker than these fronts. These are 245 45 17 at 25.7" tall. This pic was also on eibach springs.

    I used to run that size until I switched to 18s. It's one of the taller 17" sizes, so it's about the closest we can get to the stock diameter in a 17.

    Thanks guys for the pictures. My other option is a 245/50R17 but the tire selection in that size is even less than in a 255/45r17.

    Pretty sure these are 255/45/17 tires on a set of 17" x 9" Cobra Rs

    The front tires are 255/45R17. Front springs are 1.5" drop ST's.
