Tire sixe

2002 Seville with 17" stock rims, will 255 section width tires fit the stock rims and any full turn rubbing? Anyone running these or other plus size tires. Not looking to run 20's I like the stock rims.

Thanks,

Chris

There is a good calculator here: http://www.1010tires.com/TireSizeCalculator.asp?action=submit&reset=yes

Pick out the 2002 Cadillac, then it will refresh, then select the STS with 17" wheels.

Then in the lower section pick out the 255 tires and sidewall profile you are planning.

The calculator suggests that the 17x7.5 stock wheels are a bit too narrow to go to 255s.

I will have to defer to others to post if they have tried that size in terms of rubbing.
