Default STRAIGHT TALK

I HAVE A 92 SSEi my question is this, "can 245,35,20 fit comfortably "clearance wise on a 92 SSEi"??! Please no speculations or guess work with any reply'* and I "honestly" appreciate them all, but I say that because I had a custom wheel shop tell me I could go with this size and even 255,35,20'* in the rear!?!? So I'd appreciate any feed back on this, thanks!!!

20 will deliver a VERY harsh ride, especially on an SSEi with FE2 suspension. Good luck.

Yes, 245 will fit. 255 will fit with minor modifiication to 'soft' parts of the inner wheelwell.

Rubbing a little on the front plastic inner fenderwell liner is normal. My stock tires do that on both cars.

My stock size tires didn't rub. Nor do my current 235s.
