I hope that answers your question.
Great looking wheels! My wife has a Mercedes-Benz E350 4Matic, which requires a square setup since it is all wheel drive. Her wheels are 8.5 inch all around and she has 245/40/ on 18-inch rims. I have seen a lot of forum members using 245/40 all around with no issues in the front, where you could still turn the steering wheel from lock to lock without rubbing against the liner/inner well.
