Default Will 245/50R17 Tires Fit Stock SSEi Wheels

I have to replace my 245/50R17 tires (Michelin Pilot Sport A/*'* with 6K on them ) on my GTP. The lowering kit I installed is causing some rubbing issues with these tires and my fenders.

Anyway, the tires are in awesome shape. I'm wondering if I can replace my stock RSA-* (235/55R17) with these 245/50s on the Bonnie.

Thanks in advance.

I used to have those exact tires. I have '02 5 spokes. Rubbed a little on my 92. There might be extra room in a 00+.

These won't match up as good as 255/50R17'*, but they would work. The speedo will be off by 2% by running 245/50R17s (at speedo reading of 60mph, you will actually be travelling 58.8mph).

They wont rub and will fit the rim, your speedo will be out a bit but can be programmed with a custom pcm.
