You know 245 can mount on 8" rims too. And it is lighter and cheaper than 8.5".
In your case, i will use 245/40/17 instead just to be on the safe side. 8.5" is really wide, man!

Ask Luke for 100% positive ans.

I had 17x9s on my supra with 245s in the front and 275s in the rear, i don't think you would have a problem fitting 245s on a 8.5 inch rim since i fit them on a 9 inch rim.

I am not saying 8.5" don't fit since i know Subydude is carrying the 8.5" Sliptream. But it is the tire size i am concerning for him.

Sorry i ment 8". What are the offsets i need to know without using spacers? I have access to a fender rolling machine so i dont think rubbing will be an issue, well maybe on the strut. I've never bought rims and dont know what to look for. Thanx for all the input!
