I run 245/40/18's on my SHO. No rub issues whatsoever. 245 is about as wide as you can go without rolled fenders or flares.

i you car is lowered like a local guy here 225/50/16 (stock slicers) look awsome other wise i'd go with 225/55/16 very close to stock higth and look damn good. I wouldent go with 225/60/16 they look kind of funny + who needs the extra tire roll that a 60 serise would cause.

these on stock 16 inch rims of course.

i have a lowered gen 4 and i have all around 235/17/45...the front will never rub..but the backs do...i need to get the the fender flared...its not to impressive to hear the rub so i would definalatly make sure if you get something that wide that you take care of your rub if you have it...were i come from its frowned apond. but good luck

its funny, cause I run 225s on my Sable and I have a slight subframe rub. Nothing major. But 245s should be cool. Good Luck!

Heh, even funnier is how low my car sits. Still no rub on my rubber. :biggergrin:

Not trying to rub it in, but, wouldn't that be the rub? I'm gonna go rub one out now.

I wouldn't personally go wider than 235 like Kermits setup.

Correctly written, it's xxx/xx-xx

First three x's are the tread width in millimeters.

Second two are the sidewall height expressed as a percentage of the width (hence the divide sign "/").

Last two are the diameter of the rim, in inches.

You've probably noticed that tires actually include letters. The full she-bang on what all that means is located here:
