315/30/18s on 18x10 saleen wheel

Will this fit without any issue? Will it rub the inside of the wheel? Or do I need spacers, etc.?

18x10s should fit no problem. Depending on how much you are lowered though you may need to roll fenders just slightly, but that should only be if you are lowered a lot.

315's on an 18x10? That's pushing it, I would try to go a little wider on the wheel. 305's are pushing it on 10's

I think 315 is the highest with a 10' wheel and 335 on a 10.5' wheel

Corvettes run 325's on 11 or 12 inch wheels. The 2013 special Shelby edition runs 345's on 13" wheels. Vipers run 345's on 12" wheels. Gt500 only runs 285's on a 10" wheel. These engineers do this for a reason, because these are the sizes that may be safely used on these wheels

There's plenty of pictures on google of people running 315s on 18x10 saleen. I'm lowered 1.5" all around. I just don't know what a good street tire for a DD is in 315/30/18 without being a DR.

I'd recommend to still get your fenders roll

I have 305s and only dropped it 1.5" and still rubs

you left out WHAT CAR YOU HAVE. If you have a GT the quad shocks may hit

overall its mostly going to be determined by the rim setup (backspacing)

I know on my 03 cobra (little different rear end width) a back spacing of 6 inches on a 10 wide wheel is going to rub the fender lip 6.25 is about the limit~ not sure on a solid rear axle car though, its not that much different but a bit.

You will need to roll the fenders. That's the size I had on my gt and before I rolled them I was rubbing.

What's a good non DR for that size? I live in Missouri and we have quite a bit of rain this time of year.

I wouldn't run a DR AT ALL in the rain, unless you want your car in the ditch. If you live in a place with a lot of rain you should probably get to sets of rear wheels. Ones for drs and ones with all season tires

What about the Nitto NT555R? It's a DR but people say they actually hold up nicely in the rain.

It depends on which tire, is your car lowered and are the fenders rolled? I run 18x10's on my 99 Saleen which has the Maximum Motorsports H&R Super Race springs, rolled fenders and it still rubbed occasionally when I was running BFG T/A KD 295-35-18's. I currently have Bridgestone 285's on the back and they don't rub at all. If your car is lowered, I'm really not seeing how 315's would fit unless they are very narrow 315's. That's also pushing it for a 10 inch rim, a 10.5 would really be better.

I'm lowered 1.5" with Eibach Pro-Kit. I think I'm gonna go with either 295 Continental ExtremeContact DW or BFG KDW's.

you only need to roll the fenders if the rim if setup so that the comes out to far so it all depends on the rim setup..... on an 18x10 you wont have to roll the fenders if the backspacing is right. This may lead to complications clearing inside the fender area though (quad shock etc)

Most would stick the backspacing of an 18x10 around 6-6.5 inches. If 6 you will probably have to roll the fenders at 6.5 you will be ok there unless the tire REALLY sticks out.

Good choice... unlike real Saleen chrome wheels, I haven't heard of any peeling issues with the AM ones.

Most continentals (not all) aren't worth what you pay for them. They aren't bad but they aren't good.

With that said I don't know much about the extremecontact dw's. from everything I hear they are grippy, smooth, and quiet but not a long life.

My BFG's have been on my car for about 25k miles and have about 70% tread left. I'm not a hard driver but I don't baby it either

That's exactly how I am. I don't do burnouts all the time but occasionally I abuse tires but don't we all! Especially with cars like we got lol. What size are you running?

I'm running 275/35r19 all around. I'm getting a staggered setup soon and still haven't decided what tires to go with yet

No experience with the KDW's... I wish they still made the KD's... they weren't cheap but I got almost 30K out of the last set and they cornered better than the Nitto's I had tried before. I'm currently running Bridgestone RE050's on the 99 and I think they discontinued those as well, hopefully they last another 2-3 years. My 2011 came with Pirelli's, they grip but wear out really quick.
