can you say scrrrrrrrrrr?

I think 245 is really pushin it with a 40 series, and probably definitely with a 50 series...this may be a matter of offset....if its less than +45, you may have it sticking out...225's are right at the threshhold with +40 offset on 225's and 18 x 7...I'd suggest getting that info and/or putting them on and riding for 2 days to check for spacing problems

Those are way to big, if you wanted to go with a 245 width you'd probably have to run a 35 series sidewall just to keep a decent outside diameter. Even then you still might rub if you don't have a really high offset (+50). I agree with cody690, get them, sell the tires and get some that are the right size.

Will 245 rub if I"m running an 18x8 wheel with +52mm offset?

What is the ideal offset for a setup with 245 width tires?

If you plan on lowering the car stick with 225/40-18. I have GC/Koni and I'm loooowwwww. I barely have enough room, but it doesn't rub. I considered the 235/40-18 and I'm glad I didn't, becasue it would mo def rub. 225/40 is perfect. Oh my offset is +45 and anything less than +43 would be a problem.

I was looking for a racighart Evo S15 and they have it at wheelmax and they are asking $1499-(225/40/18)or (215/35/18)
then $1550 -(235/40/18) and $1599 -(245/40/18) and these prices are with the wheels...... they are saying that each wheel will cost about $280 for the 18" .. so what you think guys???

245/50/18 will give you a 27.7 inch over all diameter. That's over 3inches more than stock. It's going to look like an SUV with ballons for tires. Also your speedo will be way off at higher speeds.
