Default 245s on a 15x7?

So I have 15x7 cragar d windows in front and 15x8 in back with stock 225/70s in the front and got some 245/60s radial T/As for the back (it's 2wd and I plan on a 4/5 drop) but now my fronts are taller than the rears and it looks a little goofy. Will 245/60s fit on a 7" wide wheel? I could go 235/60 but feel that's a little too short and a square stance would be nice. What do you guys think?

Bump. I know it'd be doable, just wanted to get your thoughts, cause I know it might be a bit much for the rim.

I have, and they all say they'll fit but I know sometimes those charts don't tell you if it'll look right or not, just if its possible.

Let me know how they look. I have 15x7 rims with the stock 225 tires but I would really like to go with a 245 for a little wider tire.

Will do, I'm sure ill have pics. I'm going 245/60 though son it'll be slightly shorter but barely noticeable.

Not yet, waiting til I start my job at Dunn Tire mid April. I have 245s in the rear though and I love the look, they fill it out much better.

This gives you a good idea of the width compared to stock. They're 245/60 though, not 245/70 so they're a little short for my plans to lower the truck.

Ya I would be going with the 245/60's not the 70's for the better gas mileage. I like the width but am just worried if they will look to short on my stock height Xl 2wd.

They're barely shorter. The 60 is a percentage of 245 so 245/60 is as close as you can get to 225/70 without being taller. 26.6" vs 27.4" so less than an inch shorter. And on stock 7" wide wheels they'll be taller than on my 8" wide wheels
