## Whats the biggest tire you can put on a 17×9 wheel?

Tire brands do fluctuate a little by size, but from my experience the widest tire would be 275/40R-17. Anything larger than this will cause abnormal tire wear.

**What size tire goes on a 17×9?**

But the best sizes for 17×9 are 255/40, 255/45, 265/40, and 275/40. It will depend on the car, the biggest you can run on the front of a fox is really a 255/40. Anything is going to cause some interference issues.

### What does 215 45R17 87w mean?

It represents the height of the tire — the distance between the outer edge of the wheel and the tread of the tire. This distance is measured as a percentage of the section width. In the example set (P215/45R17), the sidewall height is 45% of the tire width. Since the width was 215 mm, 45% of that is 97 mm.

To be honest, the difference between the two are so slim you’re not going to notice any real advantages / differences. Your speedometer is going to be slightly off and you’re going to be paying more for the 225/15’s (larger tire, more rubber = increased price). The choice is up to you.
