Re: will 10 inch wide rims fit

I would not recommend running those tires. 245's on a 9 inch rim is pretty narrow and will lead to major curb damage if you even get close. The same with the 275's out back. I would recommend running at least a 265 on the 9 inch and at least a 295 out back.

Re: will 10 inch wide rims fit

depends on alot of things for them to fit. gotta remove the quad shocks, in that case you will need atleast new lower rear control arms so the rear doesnt want to wrap around. might take some fender massaging, and id say you would be pushing your luck with it being lowered but I have 275/50 on a 15x8 and seems to have enough clearance up top. im soon to be going to a 15x9 so the tire sits on the rim a lil better. check your backspacing to.
