Whats the widest tire I could put on?

I have a 94 prelude and some want to sell me some tires. that are 255/45/R17. Just want to know if they would fit...with no rubbing or anything.

Re: Whats the widest tire I could put on?

245/35/17 was done by a guy on PreludeOnline. It did take some work and rolling of the fenders, not much though. was done on a Rota Slipstream 17x8 w/ +48mm offset. Thats the widest without serious modification.

My setup has 17 x 8 O.Z. Crono-HTs in Black w/ Red Lip i had painted on there.
235/40/ZR-17 Nitto NT05

this is a great street setup, very aggressive but as long as the tires stay at or below 235 and the wheels 8" and offset 48, youre not going to rub. If you drop more than 1.5 inches though, you might rub a bit. im not dropped yet, so ive nothing to worry about yet.

Re: Whats the widest tire I could put on?

Keep in mind that some sizes are considered "irregular" and as such most of the bigger brands don't make tyres for them. When I bought my last set of tyres, I could've had a slightly wider tyre than I got, however I could only choose from brands I couldn't pronounce the name of, wheras with the size I got I could choose from all the usuals like Bridgestone, Dunlop, GoodYear, et al.
