Default New wheels

Can anyone tell me if these wheels would fit. I have no clue about any wheel parameters, but from what I checked it would have to be a square set up of minimum 245/40 17 or 255/?/17 tyres.

You're right, they're 17x9.5 so 255 tyres which might be pushing it a but up front as they're 4cm wider than oem...

Offset is quite high though so it might fit, not sure whether you'd want such wide front tyres though

Thanks. Yeah I currently have a standard set up so might leave it at that as don't want to be over-tyred at the front.

I run a 17x9 et42 up front which sits around 9mm further outboard than these wheels but i run a 225 tyre which is on the limit of starting to be stretched (Recommended smallest tyre for a 9j is 235). I've never had any issues but there is no chance i could get a wider tyre on there due to arch clearance unless i started running silly camber. I think with a 245 you would be good with this titan wheel on the outboard edge but you will start to face issue on the inboard edge. Mine actually rubbed the inboard side of the arch liner when i was on the Ring and my inboard edge is 20mm better off than the titan.
