found a great deal on a set of 17X9 FR500's for the front of my car, and I have a brand new set of Sumitomo 245/45/17's I was about to mount on my 17X8 Bullitts...

will the 245's fit and look ok on the 17X9 rims? Anyone have any pics?

245's are a bit to small for 17x9's, i know because i had a set on 17x9's. They actually stretch the tire and dont offer any protection to the sides of the rim. 275 is the proper size for that size rim

245's will fit, but they look a little weird. they don't really fit the rim properly. that's why i got rid of mine and went to 255's in front and 275's in back...

anything skinnier than 275 will be too skiny and the tire will not seat properly, the rim will stick out way farther than the tire. it wouldnt take alot to unseat the bead on it if you hit something.
