#33808, "1995 Eclipse GS tire size questions?"


          

Hello all. I'm new to this. So here's my question.

So I have a 1995 GS currently with 215/45r17's. I have 255/45r17's and I was wondering if they will fit with o problems. Thanks for taking ur time to read this.

Depends on your wheel offset and width, but most likely it will not fit. A tire that size would require an 8.5"+ wheel width which is difficult to fit without interference.

245 tread width tires hang out a little in the front. 255 tread width would hang out very noticeably. Also, a 255/45 is significantly taller than stock and will throw off your speedometer.
