295/45/18

Can someone tell me the rim size these tires will fit on not 18 but the depth I'm not sure if my wheels are deep enough

That's too tall of a tire. Will fit on a 10" wheel though

295/40/18 is better and still is a bigger overall diameter than stock. For a stock 26" diameter you are looking at a 295/35/18 but a lot of ppl run the bigger 40 sidewall in the rear and its not a problem. I think 45 is a bit much but then you have the ppl running 28" tall drag radials on 15" rims so whatevs.

A 295 is probably maxing out a 9" rim for sure..

As far as height I have a 305/45/18 on the rear and it fits fine even under load. But that's a pretty thick looking tire. Some don't like it.

Yeah yours does look good... Makes me want to keep my 17" Bullitt rims and run a 315/50 or something... Problem is I am completely OCD about the rear right one being slightly curbed to the point I would probably buy a single new rim to replace it with if I kept these rims.

It's not the size of tire that determines how long it lasts, but the type of tire and how much you beat on it.

I had 295/35/18 BFgoodwrench GeForce on before my current tires and they lasted around 35-40k before I replaced them and they had more life on them. And that's driving pretty aggressively on terrible southern Louisiana roads.

The 305/45/18 Nitto 555rs I have had on for over a year and a half now and they have about 50 miles on them. So they're lasting forever. :p hahaha

The 555Rs are not a good tire in the cold. They do ok in the rain and will kill you if you get caught on an icy road. Their compound is not going to last 35-40k though... more like 15k-20k at most. Not bad for a DR.

^-- Truth. He speaks truth. I only plan on these lasting maybe 20k if I treat them right. But that's fine for me.

So I should just stick with 295/45/18

It's your choice. When these tires wear out I'll probably get the same size same brand again.
