Oh, if you are putting the 245 on the rear on an 8.5 rim you should be fine.

Most stock oem rims are 17 x 7 except for the m68's, which are staggered.

No, don't think so. My rear rim is a 9.5 on a 265 and it is perfect.

Hmm..... place rubber glove in a towel with open end exposed off towel.
Roll towel so glove is rolled into the center with open end of glove exposed.
Wrap open end of glove over rolled towel.
Put candy in mouth.
Enjoy.
