Chapman89: I confirmed what I was asking. The tire width (245) is the width of the tire where it meets the road.

I was asking about the wheel width,
Quote:

Does the 245 have a standard width of 7.5 or 7.0 ?

Oh sorry, I read that wrong. Well our stock rims are 7.5 inches wide so I'd assume that's your answer? Maybe I'm wrong?

Those tires (245/75R17 Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac's) are approx 9.8 inches wide (section width) and 31.5 inches tall when mounted on a 7 inch wide wheel. Our wheels are 7.5 inches wide but that slight difference in width wont effect anything.

I hope you have atleast a 2" lift and 1 1/4" spaces, or you'll be rubbing at every point of steering. That tire looks like it will fill the wheel well quite a bit... just wondering, because your signature doesn't mention a lift or spacers.

1 1/4 spacers actually will cause a slight rub with the 245/17 Duratracs. It was pretty minor on mine and I was able to tweak the inner fender liner and take care of the problem.

I haven't tried without them yet but another forum member said he had no rubbing issues when he was running them without spacers.
