8" Fuchs

Hi guys, I am replacing my 245/50/16 (khumos) with the ones above 265/45/16s tomorrow... do you think if the 245/50s fit, the 265/45 will be just about the same overall?

I have about 1/2" clearance right now, so I figure it will be just about the same difference. I am judging from the position of the rim on the above pictures that my spacing is about the same. So I'd bet it'll work no problem. My rims are 8js. (8") not 9".

I will confirm with some photos tomorrow. I hope I am right. Worst case scenario... I'd have to back down from my 2" spacers to 1.5" spacers or just machine off 1/4" from the back of my 2" spacers. We'll see.
