In Reply to: 17x8 wheels with stock tire size ....(more) posted by ACdakar on April 24, 2000 at 10:58:02:

: Can i do the following:
: Four 17x8 wheels with : 225/45-17 front & 245/40-17 rear (similar to stock), instead of 17x7.5 & 17x8.5 (stock).
: Thank you.

converse that the M3 Ltwt came equipped with ...Only, instead of a constant wheel size and a staggered tire like you want, they came with the staggered wheel size, but a constant 235/40-17 tire all around! The key think is the treadwidth, and an 8" wheel will accomodate both a 225 and a 245 tire. Or, you can go with the 235/40-17 all around, as the M3s had before the stagger.
