I have a set of 17x9 Mille Miglia MM11-2 Sport on my 95 Lx with 4 245/45/17 tires using the stock suspension. The tires look a little small to me, and I was wondering what the best recommended size would be for my particular set up. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks in advanced! -Kevin

So, say I went with the 255/50/17s on my 17x9 rims, you don't think there would be any rubbing issues on the stock suspension of my 95 Lx?

Shouldn't be. I'm running 255/45 and while they are about 3/4" too short, there is plenty of room. The trouble will be finding a good tire in that size.

235s are WAY too narrow for a 9" wheel.
Agreed..I misread what Brandon wrote.. :xpshame:


IIRC the 17x9 Mille Miglia MM11-2 Sport have a +30mm Offset..


245/50/17's would be perfect!..I'm not sure about 255/50/17..Those might be slightly too wide and rub..

Lets see if somebody chimes in..That's running 17x9 Wheels w/+30mm Offset & 255/50/17 tires.. :D




Rayo..

Just a word on the 255/50/17s I have them on the rear of my bird to handle the power and it does it well with no rubbing issues at all ;)

x2 my 255/50/17 fit very well in the back, and fit pretty good in the front. very slight rubbing in the back of the front wheel well, when turned as far as it can go. i would go with 245 50 17 or something similar to that size for the front, and whatever you can fit in the back.
