Basically I am running 18x9 fronts and 18x10 rears. The problem is the manufacturer says to use 285/35 on the rear and 245/40 on the fronts. I would like to use the BF Goodrich g-Force T/A KD now they have the fronts 245/40YR18 but the colsest they have on rears are 285/30, 298/35, and 265/40. Now with 10in. wide rears how wide can I take the tire without rubbing or anything?

Thanks,

I have those tires in a 265/35/18. They fit fine. BTW 265 BFG's are wider than most manufacturers rate their tires. They are more like 285's.

The 285/30R18 is a better fitment than a 285/35R18 anyway. I would go with the 285/30R18.

Toyos T1-S and Sumitomo HTRZ II come in 285/35/18.

Just wanted to let you know. I think the t1-s are cool tires.

I was curious if the 295/35/18 BFG KDs will fit on a lowered eibach/kyb without rubbing? I know these tires are the bomb in dry grip.

Taimur,

The 295/35R18 will fit if you have around a 55mm offset. I wouldn't run a tire that is over 1" taller than the stock tire though.

Thanks Steve for your input.
I figured I have the Blitz Technospeeds 18x10, I think 47mm offset, so they won't fit. But maybe I will roll the fenders a little bit to make them fit. Plus I still break lose my 285/35R18 HTRZ II easily in 2nd gear so I wanted a 295/35 with better all around performance.


The reason I want a 35 sidewall is cause in New York the roads are so bad that I don't want to damage the rims.

Thanks again,
Taimur.
