245/30 is the max. Try dropping to a better suited wheel size. Like a 17 or 18....

how wide are the rims?? anything wider then 9" with 245's i think you will have issues with scrubbing, you may have to roll the guards or raise the suspension...

245/35 will hit the ball joint unless your wheels are way out.

245/30 is ideal, will be noticibly better then 225/30
225/35 can sometimes fit, but depends on where the wheel sits.
