Re: TIRES?

a 275 is pushing it, I would think a 265 would work. Also remember.... every tire making has different size tires.. very odd but true a 275 one brand can be as much as an inch shorter than a 275 of another brand.

Re: TIRES?

275/40/17 on the facotry bullet. I have them on all found corners, no rubbing at all. Also, the 275/40 is the same diameter as the stock 245/45 so nothing is off calibration
