Thanks for confirming workability of the 245/45/18 all round the GT. The only variant on a couple of the combinations mentioned seem to be actual speed versus what the speedometer is telling us assuming 18"X 8" wheels. See link below and type in a few size variants.

For those that run with the GT edition the car came with 245/45/18. A switch using same 18" X 8" wide wheels to something like BF Goodrich g-force Sport Comp -2 in 255/45ZR/18 will yield a 1.312 % slower speed on the speedometer since the actual wheel diameter shrinks by 1.3%. Can anybody out there comment on any other material changes in operation of the car with this or more significant tire size changes ? For example, computer throwing any trouble codes, electronic brake assist or electronic stability control
