So I got some 255/40/17's for summer - but my all seasons are 225/45/17 can I get them on a 9.5 inch rim?

Appreciate the feedback

No. Go to tire rack and pick a 225/45-17 and then go to specs. 7-8.5" is the range.

No way. Find some cheap winter wheels. What about your stock wheels?

they might fit ...but tires would be crazy stretched, and you would have more of probability damaging your wheels .

so 17 X 9.5 NT03 ENKEIs with 225/45/17 are on - I run TEIN fles coil overs and no issues.

They are temp until the 255's get in shop next week, but thought Id post that they went on - stretched but not too bad..
