This is just off the top of my head -- you will probably have to bend-in
the fender lips (don't ask me how) -- and don't forget that different
brands of tires in the same "size" have different dimensions -- check the
Goodrich Web site for exact dimensions -- http://www.bfgoodrich.com for the
exact differences between the sizes you're looking at. You're going to have
a little speedo difference because the 245/50s are taller.

Good luck!
