I have a set of brand new tires (255-40-17) and I thought it would be good to put them on but I wasn't sure if they would fit w/o rubbing fenders with oem b5.5 suspension. Any one have done it, let me know if it is possible...

I have 245/40/17 Toyo T1-S tires all the way around... which is ~.25" difference from the correct OD 225/45/17. The 255/40/17 would be a perfect match for the 225/45/17 however I believe you will rub. I have the 4motion so not sure if theres a difference with a FWD on clearance.

I meant to say staggered set up (i.e., 225-45-17 front with 17x7.5 or 8 and 255-40-17 rear with 17x8 or 8.5). I meant to ask if the rear would rub? Thanks again.

Added: I know it's an akward set up considering B5.5 is FWD but I want to put them in use in stead of have them in garage... :lol:
