Some tires are wider than others in the same "size." There is no way the 325/30-18 MXX3's you've seen (i.e. watermnp's car) are any wider in section width than my 315/35-17 KD's. I speak from experience.. my tires stick out slightly WRT the body of the car, and they also have about 1/8" of clearance at the lower frame rails at the bottom front of the wheelwell (and that clearance is only due to me taking a hammer and beating the shit out of that frame rail while at Discount Tire... the tires used to just rub there. )Jack B said:I've seen a 325 on the rear in a supra before, completely stock body (just rolling fenders).
you can POSSIBLY fit a 335, but who knows.

335s will not fit well on a 11.5 (315 is the perfect size for a 11.5), nor will a 335 fit in the body of the supra without custom rear quarter panels (and I don't mean fender rolling, I mean widebody).
Steve Theodore said:Andi,
Do you mind telling me what offset you have on the front and rear wheels, and what suspension mods you have (ie: coilovers)? Do you think I could run a similar setup with my current suspension which consists of Koni yellows and Eibach pro springs? I was originally planning on running the same size tires you are on 17x9.5 fronts and 17x11 rears (which I don't have yet) but I'd love to have that extra half inch front and rear. Thanks a lot man.
13's would be perfect for 335's. Not 355's (nobody even makes 355's, but if they did, I'd put them on a 13.5 or 14).Syed Shah said:What would i have to do to fit 13" rear wheels? And would they take 355s?
As for fitting them, what arch mods would I need? Would the TRD Widebody kit be alright?
Thanks for the info guys
Got a link to a tire place w/ info on those 355's?Syed Shah said:They make 355s over here
Are you sure that the TRD kit would be wide enough? It only adds 2" overall.
According to James Razor at The Wheel Source (Forgeline), my front 17x9.5's were 43mm offset and my 17x11's were 47mm offset. With these wheels, the rear tires only touched the Eibachs when the car was in the air on a lift with the wheels hanging... and they only barely touched. Not an issue -- put the car on the ground and there was almost 1/3" of clearance at the spring. The frame rail was much more of an issue.. whenever I'd come in for balancing there would be an area of the wheelwell at the frame rail that had been polished by the tire, and I'd mallet it in a bit while they were balancing my tires (got some funny looks from the Discount Tire guys...). But it worked fine. Once I got the Tein coil-overs, the smaller diameter rear springs wouldn't even touch the 315s when the car was in the air.
Now I have CCW wheels. According to John at CCW, my front offset is is 44.5mm and my rear offset is 50.8mm. Now that I have the CCW's, my left rear 315 KD does touch the coilover spring when the car is on the lift, but not at any other time (the suspension geometry pushes the wheels out a lot as the car is put onto the ground.. at least 1/4").
Backspacing that I measured myself on the forgelines:
Front 17x9.5's: 6.91"
Rear 17x11's: 7.85"
Backspacing that I was quoted by John at CCW for my CCW's:
Front 17x10's: 7.25"
Rear 17x11.5's: 8.25"
What does this mean?
Fronts: Compared to my Forgelines, the CCW's have an extra 0.34" on the inside and 0.15" on the outside.
Rears: Compared to my Forgelines, the CCW's have an extra 0.4" of width on the inside and an extra 0.1" of width on the outside.
Seeing as how 315 KD's are *STILL* on national backorder, as they have been for almost a year now, I think I may be downgrading to a set of Yokohama AVS Sports next. Don't know. Either that or some cheap Sumitomo HTR Z's. Tire Rack's review isn't too great (~equal to the Kumho Ecsta Supra POS's) but I am not sure I want to spend KD-type-money for a tire that just ain't quite as good (AVS Sport). We'll see...
