As wide as can fit on there? I'm assuming they are 9" all around and honestly I would not run more than a 265 or 275 on there. If you go too wide you'll actually LOSE performance and your handling will be ***. You want the tire to be as flush as possible without being "hella flush" or whatever that stupid ricer term is. Like straight up and down. The 265s on my 17x9s lip out a little and the next time I need tires or when I get new rims I'm going to a 255 on a 9" wide front.

Yea I'm not going for a ricer look, after some research I found out they're 9 wide, so I don't have too much room to grow, I'm trying to get more traction ( I know there's other thing such as control arms etc but I'm just planning for the future since I know the stock tires don't last long)

275 will deff fit a lot of people have done it and looks perfect. A lot depends on the type of tire you get.

Get the BFG Comp 2s on special on tirerack right now. Michelins are good but they are balls expensive and honestly not worth what you pay.

I've done a lot of research on those BFGs. Tirerack rates them #1 in their category. I am going to be buying a set soon to put on my '95 T/A.
