245 65 17's

Anyone running 275' 65 17s on stock wheels and suspension?

I know they are slightly taller and wider than the 265 65 17 OE tires, just want to know if there is anything I should watch out for if I went with the larger tire.

Looking at Falken Wild Peaks. Any feedback on these tires? I just picked up an 2002 Grand and so far am really liking what I have to hear about the falkens.

Thanks!

ur actually running narrower tires with the 245 ... check out the online tire ratio calculator it lets you enter the stock dimensions and see what kind of tires are compatible

Re: 245 65 17's

I run 255 75 17's with about 3" of lift without problems.

Is your rig lifted, and if not do you plan on wheeling it at all? If you don't have to flex it out you should be good. May need to slightly trim the inner fender to keep from rubbing at full lock though.
