My dads friend who works at a tire shop says 245/40 - 285/35 can't be done :rolleyes: I know it could be done if I roll the fenders (to prevent rubbing) but I might have to end up getting 235F - 275R, I have seen 275s but how do 235 look?

What's your rims specs? I'll put it into Steve's guide for you. I think the best combo is 275/35 and 245/40. They have the exact same ride height.

You can't really tell the diff between 235/245 much. I've run both and it seems the same to me.

What??? Not sure at all what you are trying to say, but ill try... 285's will fit on the back fine, I dont think you need to even roll your fenders. And there is no reason you cant go bigger than 235's. I assume that this car is TT...

Even with less than ideal offsets I was able to fit 285/35 without a problem. What kinda tires are these. I know some brandare wider than others in the same size category.

I think the perfect widths are 245 in the front for a x9 wheel, and 275 would be perfect for a x10.

What are your rim spec? size and offset?

Just for reference, I have 245/40/18 in the front with a +37 offset and a 295/35/18 in the Rear with a +42 offset. Rear fenders were cut to be safe from rubbing.

the front are 18x9 and the rear are 18x10, the offset for the front is +42 and for the rears +37

Could someone suggest or actually do me a favor and link me directly to a tirerack link to show what would really be good combo

Tirerack plays the "safe game" and gives you really shitty sizes, just in case you don't complain to them "oh my tires rub".

With those specs, I would run 245/40/18 (fronts) and 275/35/18 (rears). Going any bigger in the rears and I don't know if they'll rub or not.

Your car must not be lowered, cuz im pretty sure that would rub in the front if it were lowered like mine or SupraHKSx.

:shock: wtf? I have 245's in the front and it's not rubbing on the fenders, but rather it rubs on the plastic shit that is closer to the front bumper when I'm turning.

You should of went with a 285/35 in the rear since you have a 18x10!
You dont have to roll your fenders either with the 285!
I just seen a 18x9.5 with a 295/35 on it, which I thought it would of been to big for the wheel, but its not. It fits really good!

With a +42 in the front, you should be able to run a 245/40 no problem.

In the rears with a +37 offset, your widest tire that you might beable to fit without having to mod the fenders is 275/35.

So you should be ok.




kevganzon,

Thanks bro :)

Be careful around curbs. With 235s on a 9" rim, the lip will be pretty exposed. I run 265s front and 285s rear with tein springs. I have no rubbing issues, but I have 43 and 44 offsets.

Are they Pirelli's that much? Either they're expensive or your dad's buddy isnt giving you a very good deal.

I just bought BFG KDW-2's for $756 in the sizes that i posted above.

I dont know..... :dunno:
