I hear you cannot go as wide on live axle as you can with IRS.
I run 245/45-17 all day. And no worries with 255/50-16 M/T drag radials either.

So live axle tends to move around a little more.
Probably still okay with 245's but maybe go max 235's to be safe unless anyone else has experimented and can confirm

I have 225/50 16s, no issues on the ute. I believe I can go 235 but have heard 245 needs a lower profile or rubbing can occur.
