    personally i wouldnt run them. 30mm less tread width (275mm-245mm) is roughly 1" less tread on each wheel and curb rash is exactly what i would be worried about, IMO

    I had some 245/45/17's mounted on 17x9 rims & it looked bad as the rim was way too wide for that size tire. For a 245/45/17 you need a 8" rim or an 8.5 might work.
