just bought 05 acura tl rims 245/40/17

will this size rub? it seems that most of us on here only go as high as 235's, preferrably 225. if it will rub, where would it rub? i havent put them on yet, theres a shop here in town that'll bore it out for $15 a wheel, but the tires need to be off the rim. anyhow, the rims came with two brand new 245/40/17 bfgoodrich gforce on two rims. the ones with the flame looking tread. the other two rims have two different used tires on there. i was thinking of buying 2 245/40/17 bfgoodrich gforce tires so that the whole set would match, but i'm skeptic about the ride quality and rubbing. i got these off of craigslist in orlando florida for $300. so i guess if i have to spend a lil more to do this right, i could. any help would be appreciated

i'm pretty sure they will run. 225/45R17 are ideal. mostlikey it will run when you make turns and hit bumps

I think he meant rub.

Anyways, yeah, they'll definitely rub. Get 225/45/17's, you'll be a lot happier.

yea, thats what i ment, Rub. Your best bet would be to get the tires taken off, drop off the wheels to be bored, sell the tires on CL or ebay or whatever, and get new tires
