245/45/17's are a good size,, but there will be somewhat of a gap between the tire and fender..

245/45 needs at least a 7.5" wheel, 8 or 8.5" is better. For a stock ride height car with 17x7" wheels, my suggestion would be to use 235/55R17 ... comfortable fit for that wheel width, and slightly taller than the OEM diameter, fill up the fender openings a bit.

I have read some discussions on wheels and tires with you in them,seems to me your the guy I should take advise from.I am going to go ahead and start looking for some 235/55R17.Anyone have a good set of wheels or tires they want to sell?I know I will be spending some good money for a new set of tires,so if anyone has a set of wheels and tires for sale I would consider that rout also.

Thanks

Keep an eye out for 05-up Mustang takeoffs ... lots of the V6s, and some of the early GTs had Pirelli P-Zero Nero all-seasons in the 235/55R17 size. Pretty decent tires, and sometimes they can be found for a reasonable price because there isn't much demand for them in the Mustang community. Locally here in the Toronto area I've seen low mileage takeoffs go for $200 - $300 for a set.


cheers

Eh, I run 255/50/17's on my 17x7's. Previously I ran 245/45/17's also without issue, however I agree they are a tad... short.

Just got back from meeting this guy that was selling a full set of wheels and tires that only have about 500 miles on the whole set.The tires on them are Michelin Primacy MXV4 Tires 235/55R-17,the wheels are Drag DR34 Wheels all in like new condition.Dont know how good the tires are, but for the price I was about to spend on a new set of tires anyways,I got wheels as a bonus.Now I will get tires off and sell the wheels.They are 17 x 7.5 5-120 Bolt Pattern.The guy spent over $1,200.00 on the set and let me just say I got it for less than half that.Thankful for the deal.
