Default Is a 245/35 on a 10.5" too skinny?

For the rears on the 2gs or should I not chance it and go for more protection from a 255 or 265 but probably have to do some rear fender pulling on a +22 offset?

you can do a 255/30 and be safe with just a complete fender shave! i had 245/35 before on a 10.5 it was a nice stretch but the 255/30 was awesome for me!!

245/35 should be no problem. I've done 235/35 on a 10.5 before with no problems

I got 225/35s on a 10 for my daily and it looks great and 235/35s on a 10.5 on my GS and looks great. Both ride smooth.

I have that same setup on mines and so far no problem. Took a couple good beating from some potholes and held it's ground.
