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.

Idk what I will do since i am getting lowered, rims and tires
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:

Have a great day,
