Tire question

I'm in need of some new tires. I was wanting to get a new set of rims also, but it's just not in the budget right now. So....what is the widest tire I can get on the stock wheels of an 01 GT? Is it recommended? Can I put the same size on the front and back, or should I just try to get a little wider in the back? Will I run into any problems at all? Sorry if I'm sounding like a newb.

i take it now if you are running stock you have 245's on their now. you are safe to go to a 255 on stock wheels..cause stock wheels say your good from 7.5 - 9 inch, anything bigger then that you need a wider wheel

-------- added 3 Minutes and 21 Seconds later --------

check out my thread here

So 255/45/17? Would that be all the way around? No clearance issues?

I must not have. When you were running 255s, could you tell it was a little wider by looking at it?
