I'm guessing 17x8? I would say 255

Stock from the factory is 245, so i agree with Venomouz, 255 would be the highest i would go.

I heard you can fit up to 275 without problems but that's on a 17x8 starfish wheels though.

There are places that will do a 275, but I wouldn't... You get cornering had and your gonna be all over the sidewall. Stick to 255. 9" wide is nice for 275.
