Default Tire Size

245/45-17 is the OEM tire size for the 17" wheel option in 96. It may work if it's not lowered. I'd go with a lower profile tire. My snowtires would rub onmy drivers side. You can see where it's rubbing atin the pic. I think the profile was60 or 65 on a 16" stock rim. It only happend after I had my Eibach pro-kit installed though. The tire would grab and pull the car. Not very fun when you're drivingdown the road. It would only grab when the street was uneven or if I was turning right into a parking lot. </P>
