Default Tire question -stock height w/17" Pathys

I picked up a set of the 17x8 off of a 2004 Pathfinder and wanted to run 245/50-17 or the 245/45. My 2wd 95 is completely stock. Any rubbing issues I may encounter?

Cheers.

this should help.

the sizes you want to run are 1.1 inches taller and 1.9 inches wider. peek in the fender wells and measure the room.

For some reason I want to say the bolt pattern is different on those wheels. Should be 6x5.5 with a 4 inch bore.

Thanks all for the input. I have checked the wheels and they do fit. From looking at the space under the wheels wells there seems to be plenty of room but that is while the truck is stationary. I am wondering if i will have trouble while driving over bumps and such. I don't think it will but i was hoping someone would chime in if they run these sizes.

Too many bourbons may have thrown my eye calibration off a bit...

cheers.

Just wanted to update this thread. I ended up going with 225/55-17 and am happy with the fit.
