Thanks for the response. I was planning on reading the threads on lowered 3s to see whether anyone is having clearance issues with a 1.5" drop and 245s. Figure that would be a crude indicator for me. Beyond clearance, would I potentially screw up any aspect of my car in a material way by going that much bigger on tires? Again, I don't much care that my speedo, odo, and consumption will be off. I'm more concerned with things like whether it could adversely affect my ABS or any other safety or driving feature of my car. Thanks again.
