May have no choice
How bad will a Hoosier 225/45/17 rub with a stock SVT suspension? I have used Kuhmo V710's in that size without problem. The issue is the used tire dealer I go though is not seeing V710's this year or 40 series Hoosiers. Got plenty of 45's though. So if I have to run that size how bad will it be?

I didn't have a problem running that size in the Falken Azenis RT-615. [dunno]
^^^Stock suspension and wheels.

What wheels are you going to use?
That's probably the biggest factor.

remember hoosiers run a bit bigger then what they say :)

True, but so do the RT-615s. [;)]
They ran wider, yet shorter than your average run of the mill 225/45/17.
Got specs on the Hoosiers?

Was told by the dealer today same height as the V710's (in 225/45/17) but a little wider. Ordered today any way to hopefully have for this weekend. And the Kuhmo's were almost the same height as me street 215/45/17,s. Will know soon in any case.
