I got myself a set of EL GT wheels...17" x 8.5"
The GT came with 245s all round, butwhat do you reckon?

I'm thinking maybe 255/40 rear and 245/40 front.

Are 245 ok on the front clearance wise, should I go 245 all round ?

They genuine? The copies are only 8" wide (and most places won't go wider than 245 on an 8).
