I just bought a set of fn01r-c, 17x9 +15 all around. I own a 97 240 w/ an eibach pro-kit. I'm planning on buying a set of KTS coilovers in the near future. I'm planing on runninf a 235/45/zr17 in fron and a 255/40/zr17 in back. I'm going to run NT555 for tire life and put some sticky rubber on the stocks. Will these sizes work?

Have you ever seen those sizes on wheels, they definately arent rubber bands.

Those profiles will have a bit stiffer sidewalls and it will leave you more room up front for clearance. I had 225/45/17s up front and it rubbed too much, they don't make 225/40s so i went 235/40s, a few mm shorter.

i've seen 235/45's on 17x8, so on a 17x9, there won't be any issues with clearance, and my buddy's car is pretty much slammed.

btw, sidewall profiles aren't measure in millimeters.
the 235/45/17's sidewall is based on the width of the tire (235) divided by 45%.
so the sidewall's height is 45% the width of the tire.
