Stock tires on 10in wide rims

I was wondering if anyone could tell me if my stock size tires(can't remember the size and car is in the body shop) will fit on 18x10 wheels? The reason I ask is I want to get staggered wheels but can't afford tires and wheels at the same time plus my tires only have about 6000 miles on them. This is my first post as a new member so don't be too hard on me

If you are getting wider wheels, just get new tires. If you really don't want to waste the tires then get the new wheels after your tread life is gone.

And btw, welcome to the forum! I hope you like it here, lots of really nice and smart people on here.

I believe stock tires come as 245/45/18.

Those would be maximum 8.5" so don't try to fit 245s on 10" metal. Save money first then buy tires and rims because:

1.) Tire / Wheel package saves you some money and it comes pre mounted
2.) having to take the stock tires off to put onto the new wheels will cost money
3.) you can then have an extra set of rims (all season for winter and summer for well... Summer)

+1 on tire/wheel combos.

I spent $1250 on AM and got 18x9/10s with tires. Normally those tires are $164 and $169 each (on AM), and the wheels are $149 and $169. The big O around here mounts and balances tires for $30 each. I also got 20 chrome locking lugnuts... So if you do the math it comes out to just about $1500 for all of it separately. I saved $250 in the wheel and tire package.

Plus if you put 245s on a 10" rim you really won't have the staggered look you're going for.

This is my buddies Genesis. He was running a 245 on a 10 inch rim. It's kind of a stretch look and I don't think it'll be all that safe. You're better off waiting until you can afford a wider set of tires or pick up some used tired to hold you over.

Good god man. How's it handle? It's got virtually no sidewalls to support and lean on in corners. It probably slides all over the place and has no traction in straight lines.

Yeah OP negative infinity on this setup. You could do it. Doesn't look horrible but for performance put wider tires on. Plus as another poster said you won't technically have staggered by doing this.

Like primers friend has done it so has one of my friend on his 240. Not safe and is stretched, sell you're stock tires and save up for the correct size tire

Yeah, he has to run so much camber just to fit a 10 inch wide rim, he's pretty much riding on the edge of the tire. Makes no sense.
