CSA 17" Gladiators on EF

what width do the gladiators come in? will it take 265 tires?

Actually would 245 front and 265 rear go on an EF?

Re: CSA 17" Gladiators on EF

I've just checked their brochure and the widest is 8"

You can get 265s on there but they'll be a bi*ch to fit up.

However, it's legal and can be done.

ummm so 245 front 255 rear would be a better combo? I just love the look of those wheels

if you used 245s and 255s it'll be hard to match up the overall diameter. 235/45R17 front and 265/40R17 rear is the optimum combo.
