I know 225/45/17 should be no problem, anyone running that or even a larger size with the stock 17" multi spokes? I have a 2009 SES coupe. Thanks.

Hey folks,

I'd suggest checking out Ford's Tire Finder Tool. In addition to finding the perfect tires for your ride, there are money-saving coupons available so you'll have a little extra green in your pocket. Check it out: http://owner.ford.com/servlet/Conten...mo-position3.1

Have a great day,
Crystal

Kipp check out this site:

http://www.1010tires.com/tiresizecal...r-snt-emty-str

it will let you input sizes to see the difference.

Kipp You can do it, but it's not gonna close the gap by much. between those two you're looking at a height difference of about 4mm. that and a 225/45 is gonna be near impossible to find.

changing the tire size never does much for gap unless you make a big change and then you run in to other issues. speedo being off, wheel well isn't wide enough to clear it. . .
