Question

Ok I went to order my BF Goodrich G Force KDs today only to find that they only come 245 45 17 and 255 45 17. My question is will a 245 45 work on the front with Hotchkiss springs 2" drop I have replaced the whole front end with Global West upper and lower controll arms Del Alum bushings and Solid body mount and Global West sub frame connectors? I dont want any rubbing with my car loaded with 4 adults and the trunk full. The rear will get the 255 45 17 and it also has Hotckis Spring 11/2" lower and poly bushings.
Thanks,
Mike

All depends on the backspacing of the wheels. I assume it's an 8" wheel?

I forgot its a 17 8 with a 5" backspace? Crap its been so long since I ordered them. It the backspacing that everyone recommend. It is 4.75 or 5 they are American Racing Torque Thrust 2's.
Thanks,
Mike

Mike, you'll be just fine with that. I ran 4.75 BS and I know a lot of guys that ran 5" BS without issue.

I ran a 245/45/17 on a 17x8 with 4.75 BS and it rubbed ever a little at full lock when entering a driveway. It just shined the paint on the frame.
