    You should be okay, it's a thinner tire so your wheel gap will be more but I was rocking a 245/45/19 and that wasn't too bad, same size as stock.

    245 is a narrower tire. Has nothing to do with wheel gap. They will be fine just slightly stretched on the wheel. Our stock tire is 255/45/18

    Your tires will look slightly stretched. Will they work yes. I wouldnt go with a narrower tire if it was me but for you that all depends how good the deal is lol

    The 45 I'd a ratio of the tire width the skinny the tire the lower the aspect ratio is the tire is thinner than stock

    Stretched means the tire will look like smaller width than the rim the the sidewall will look like it's at a slight angle.
