Been searching cant really get a definite answer. I have 17 inch EVO 8 wheels, and I want to run 245/45/17 Nitto Drag radials. Anyone been agble to get 245s on? I will be runnning spacers in the rear, will the fron tneed any??
You won't need spacers. If anything, the rear will sit flush and you'll need to camber the front in about 2.5 degrees to tuck, possibly more with a 245. I ran 245/40r17. They're meaty. a 245/45 is going to be really tall with that bigger sidewall. I now run a 235/40 and find it's a great balance between traction and looks.
Click the link in my sig. Any pic you see with my old 5zigen wheels have 245/40's mounted to them. The BBS's have 235's.
I have 245/40/17s on EVO VIII wheels on 1101 as we speak. As Wop mentioned the rears fit perfect without spacers. The front do stick out a bit but with more camber they would fit pretty well.
On my Talon I had EVO IX wheels with 245/45/17 and they looked really big. I had coilovers on it so fitment wasn't much of an issue. When I look ay 1101 with GR2s the tires are really close to the spring mount. I doubt a 45 series tire would fit on a stock style strut.
