245/40's?

Since staggering is mainly a cosmetic issue, don't expect much change from not doing so. Some would even argue that keeping the same size all around will give you more nuetral handling. We've had no probs with 225/45R17 or 235/40R17 all around. I've heard of some guys running 235/45R17, but we've had a few reports or rubbing so I can't officically recommend it.
