Default Real quick will a 245/50/17 clear on a 2000 SSEI?

Found an man who has a NICE set of Michelin 245/50/17'* but before I jump on them will those clear okay with my stock Pontiac 17' rims on the 2000 SSEI?

Thanks

Default No snow : (

Man I was we had some snow.

Nope down here in the South but if it snows I will be plowing around in one of my two gas guzzlin big old honkin 70'* wagoneers so covered on that.

I have Kumho'* on the Pony Yack right now, they grip decent but as soon as I get full boost back I am going to roast those things down quickly while I get use to torque steering . I the Michelins are hard they might have a longer life even if I am sacrificing traction. If I race it will be from a rolling start anyhow since most kids won't suspect some old geezer like me is going to mess with them anyway............WRONG!!! ha ha

so to answer your question the original listed size is 235/55 and 245/50 would only be slightly wider (10mm) and probably the exact same height.

michelins last the longest, if you are in the south probably a good tire. ive never bought one though because up here those are the fools you see in the ditch. i work with a guy who swears by them but when it comes down to it he has two sets of rims and studded snows for the winter. he only runs them in the summer. im too lazy, and i buy good bfg all weather

Yes Justin these would suck big time in the snow for sure
but for $180 mounted,balanced, aligned, no stinking taxes or disposals for a set with 65% tread I think I am a playuh
