Is anyone running 235/50/17s or 235/45/18s? They're 26.3" tall and I was wondering about the clearance and what kind of drop you have, if any, and the wheel width and backspacing you're running? Any input would be appreciated.

245/45/17's fit great. they are 25.7in tall which is within a whisper of stock.

Thanks for the replies - I know the 245/45/17 will work as that and 255/45/17s seem to be the #1 and #2 choices for our cars with 17" rims. I'm looking at running a 26.3" or 27" rear tire and was looking at maybe running a little taller front tire as I don't think I can drop the rear enough to level the car out. However, I've been used to a relatively large rake on the car and I'll probably be fine with a little rake this time around. Thanks again, EKG
