I have those exact wheels but in 18x10. I am currently running 275/40/18 on the front and 295/45/18 in the back the 45 series tire is big with a good amount of sidewall and I seem to get much better traction with these than I did with the 35 series tire I was running before that. I am only lowered an inch so the 295/45 fills up the rear much better. I can post some pics when I get off of work if your interested.

I am in the same debacle here. I have a Boss that is a daily driver, we got 23000 miles out of the stockers. Looking at f14 18x10 with 305/40r19 NT555R in the back and 285/40 NT555 in the front. No lowering kit I just want it to hook up and go.
Any thoughts?

Sorry it took me so long and these are not the best pics but hopefully you can get an idea, when it warms up I can take some better outdoor pics. 295/45/18 rear and 275/40/18 front.

New wheel and tire set up thoughts

There is this car builder feature at nicheroadwheels.com. You may want to check it out. You don't have to buy there but you can see how the wheel style would look like in your car. Currently looking into these wheels for my black stanger.

Jayday the oversized tire in the rear looks awesome! I think that would look great on my stock height 12. What tires are you running? I'm looking to upgrade stock 8.5 wheels and Nero zeros

That setup looks awesome. Is that stock height or are you lowered?
