Tire vs Rim size question
#1
I have 265 tires on my Mach 1. Can I go down to a 245 tire size with the current rims? Didnt know if you can go down in size with same rims. Thank you

You can go up or down depending on size rim. I'd say not a problem, but I like to go to Jegs or Tirerack or Summit Racing to confirm. Example:

See where it says "Required wheel width" ?

Thank you I can get a set of 4 Michelin 245x45xZR18 Pilot Sport AS, Ultra High Performance, for around $100 a piece. I will check the link.

If you have 8 inch wide wheels then those will fit perfectly, but if the wheels are 7 inch wide you might have trouble mounting them. To be sure check tirerack.com for the specific tires and look for measured width which is what they recommend and rim width range.

hope this helps
