17 X 7.5 SPORT TUNING T23 - 48mm offset

245/45R-17 FIRESTONE FIREHAWK INDY 500 XL

I'd like to go with 255/45 on my next purchase and felt around the wheel wells turned in both directions and there is at least 1" of clearance width-wise. The 245/45s I have now are 9.6" wide and the 255/45s would be just 10" wide so I'd only be adding .2" to each side which seems like a no brainer. But I wondered if anyone else has tried 255/45s on 7.5" rims with 48mm offset?

At a 7.5 wide wheel max recommended width tire is 235 at 245 your already oversized 255 way too wide to properly sit on a 7.5 wheel.

Yeah it pinches it and wont handle correctly. Probably roll the sidewall easier.

Why is that ?
It’s a cover that goes over your brakes usually over the stock brakes to give it BBK look. Didn't realize they are actually quite expensive.

I think Macgyer was wondering why I would take them off and sell them.

Oh Gotcha.

I painted calipers b4. Its actually pretty easy and holds up very well. Duplicolor makes a great Caliper Paint.

That's lots of pinch on the right. What size tire on what size wheel? I'm running a 17x8 with a 215/55r17 (indy 500). The side wall is straight.
17X8 +35 on 235 /50/17 might go to 235/55/17 next time around as I like the meatier look on my cars especially on the Juke.
