245/50 on SRT Reps (20x9 all around) ok??

OK guys I have a question.. I think I made a mistake on ordering my tires for my Reps.. I thought I ordered the Stock Srt size 255/45s but I ended up actually ordering 245/50s.. I've been working 12-13 hour shifts so I'm pretty sure thats why I made the mistake..

I searched a bit on here and on the red site but not finding a definite answer..

So my question is will I have any problems running the 245/50s on the reps??
The 245 can be mounted on 8.5" wheels but of course the reps are 9"..
Would this cause a probs with fitment, tire sensors, etc?? Or should I just return them and order the 255's??

Please help ease my mind and to get them on..
Isaac

You'll be fine and probably like the ride and look better with the small added amount of sidewall. 245's came stock on plenty of 9" wide SRT wheels.

Thanxs guys.. For some reason I actually like the chrome door mouldings and its weird cuz I never like chrome.. I'm still thinking about paint matching them but for right now they'll stay..

They're Factor Repos that I won off fleabay.. I won a gloss black one as a spare the other day for like 90..
