be advised that if your car is lowered and you're running 9" wheels, you will need fender work.

for a 9" wheel, imo you can nicely run 245. it would look somewhat like this:

im currently running 18x8.5 on 235/40/18. you can run 245's depending on how much you are lowered (whether you will rub or not)
