width wise, yes.. but it will be roughly 1.5" shorter than the stock tire, so your speedo will be off some.

Way small. The recomended is usually 245/50, though i have seen 235/50's, but in my opinion they will be too short.

i'm using 255/50/17 on 17x7. looks great but warning...the alignment equipment couldn't mount on it so have to switch back to oem wheels and tires to do alignment.

My daily job is to fry rice for my customers....

My Bird is the nicest looking in Midland, Michigan
