It will fit.....

The 245/45/17 are 1.3 inches shorter than Impala size. Since you have a Roadmaster, they are 2.3 inches shorter than factory.

They will looks absolutely horrible - way too skinny. Also, your speedometer will read 8.1% fast. You will also loose some traction off the line.

Tires are the most important piece of a car related to Handling. A crummy tire will make the car feel crummy, handle poorly, be vulnerable in the rain, and wear out extra fast.

Wait, Save, & Spend cash for real tires.
