It's all about the offset. I ran a 17x9 +22 with 275/40 on the front of a 99 Cobra and a 17x10 +15 on the rear with 315/35 with no issues. Might have to roll the fenders though.

Will they fit my Fox

Will a 17x9 +22 offset fit on a Foxbody with a 245/45 tire on front and 275/40 out back? Looking at a set of matte black RPF1s in that size.
