I recently bought Volk Racing GTC phase 2 rims, 18by 9 and 18 by 10,...what is the best tire size from min to max or best that is recomended for these Rims?

personally id run 265/35R18 in the front. good cushion for your rim, good road noise, a decent amount of rubber on the ground, and perfect vs. your speedometer...off by about .2mph @ 200mph.

for the rear, 285/30, 285/35, or 295/35 will fit too. (you could do 275's but why go smaller??

If you tell us the offsets you got, we could give you an exact answer, otherwise it's a guessing game. Or you could plug your offsets and wheel widths into Steve's fitment guide which is a sticky here and that gives correct answers to what tires will fit.

Exactly, knowing the offset of your rim and the suspension setup you have dictates what size tire you will be able to run in the front and back.

since you don't know the offsets (nothing personal to you Russ since it seems like quite a few other's also do this ...but I don't get how the hell could anybody spend a couple grand or more on wheels and not even know the offsets?) if we assume it is a "reasonable" Supra fitment, the 245F and 275R should fit no problem even with no fender or wheel well mods. But if the offsets are crazy wrong, you'd be taking a chance even with those tire sizes.

For example, with +45 offsets on my 18" X 9-1/2"F and 10-1/2"R wheels I now have 255/35F and 285/30R and I could fit 265/35 on front next time and I have no fender or wheel well mods and I'm lowered on Tein HA's

Thanks for your advice, the rims should be comming in a few days, does it say the offset on the box? or should i just call supra store to ask?

BTW do you have your fenders rolled??

if not I think the largest you can go with the face2 type GTCs is 265s with out rubbing

that again depends on the offset, if you are talking about the 10 inch rim i think the 'largest' offset was +44 and i think they said you could fit 285s as long as they were 30's and not 35's.
