Anyone running staggered tire sizes? - Page 2 - GM Forum - Buick, Cadillac, Chev, Olds, GMC & Pontiac chat


Performance, Brainstorming & Tuning Talk about modifications, or anything else associated with performance enhancements. Have a new idea for performance/reliability? Post it here. No idea is stupid! (please use Detailing and Appearance for cosmetic ideas)

235'* are only one centimeter wider. That'* HALF a centimeter on each side. 245'* are 2 centimeters wider, amounting to only ONE centimeter on each side.

Drive it over here, and we'll slap one of mine in there.

If you have to cut the wheel real hard to the left the drivers front will rub slightly on the inner fender plastic crap. Otherwise no problems with 245/55
