Will a 245/40/17 fit

I have these almost brand new winter tires which are 245/40/17 and was wondering if they would fit on my 01 cl type s( stock suspension). i know the tires that are on there now are 215/50/17. I tried searching but nothing came up. Thanks in advance.

Are you planning on getting some new wheels?

That takes a 215, but you can go as high as 235. 245 may fit, like a whale's foreskin, though.

Sorry, I started out serious like you, but the mentally around here has absorbed me.

In other words, they will fit, but bulge out and look weird, and be really soft and floaty from what I've read.


Like a pair of huge pants held on by a tight belt, it will look like parachute tires.

Now, you could get base 2004-2006 TL wheels and they will fit nicely on those!

Not quite as bad as I though. Here's a tire sixe comparison calculator on Tacoma Forums. https://www.tacomaworld.com/tirecalc...0r17-245-40r17
