Max Tire size

ON a 18x10 rear rim for 99-04 Stangs what is the max tire width you can run. I am looking at new rims but every place suggest 275's, well I have them on stock rims and they are 9's so can say a 295 or 305 be about the max and not look bad? I have the quad shocks on mine but plan on upgrading to better upper and lower control arms do I still need these shocks, street n strip? Just looking for advice, if I have to will run spacers but that is the reason for the deep dish rims. Thanks.

I'm running 295's on my 18x10's. They fit the rim really well.

Re: Max Tire size

I was looking at the BFG KDW tires in 295 just wondering if anyone else has these on their rims or have seen this size on some 18x10s

Re: Max Tire size

i have 285's because they were cheap, but 295's fit perfect.

Re: Max Tire size

for an 18x10 the BEST tire fitment is a 295/35/18 or a 305/35/18 the reason I put two sizes is that some tire companies run more narrow than others so you need to research this.

BFG KDW's for instance a 295 (as are on my 10 wide rims and you can see in my pics in my sig) fit just right
