Staggered RTR wheels and tires

I'm going to order RTR rims and tires, but the only place I could find them staggered (CJ Piny Parts) was with High Performance Nitto 285's and 255's (which sadly my parents will not let me get)

Does anyone know other places that have the RTR's with staggered tires? I would prefer 285's in the rear (again, must be all season tires)

I do know AM has just the rims, and a wheel and tire setup with 275's on all 4.

Well the rtr wheels are 9.5" wide and you do not want to run a 255 on a 9.5.

Yes. Best bet is to get the 275's all around and if you want to go 285/295/305 latter on out back you can

Thank you for the input, I wouldn't have known that a 255 is small for a 9.5" rim.

Buy the rims and tires separate so that you can pick the tires you want

Staggered RTR wheels and tires

Does AM offer 285's or 255 all seasons for the new 5.0's?

If my parents would let me use High performance tires, then we wouldn't be having this discussion. I would order them with MT Street comps, but I just can't convince them...

AM allows you to build your own wheel an tire kit. So just browse through and select what you want separately. It's what I did when I wanted a 285 staggered setup, and they only offered a 275 set up.

Pick front wheels
Pick back wheels
Pick front tires
Pick rear tires
Get rpms kit
Call AM when ready to order

Now you can get the set up you want for about the same price, and if you call AM they'll get everything mounted and balanced too! Because they're awesome like that.

That's sweet. Does AM offer any 285 and 255 tires in all seasons, I know they do for high performance tires.

It may just be me but 275 all around sounds a little big

I've seen some pictures, they are extremely close to flush with the wheel well, maybe very slightly sticking out of the front well, not close to rubbing.

I'm Amazed that there is No shop there that can order you the set of Wheels and Tires you want.

Doesn't matter now, I talked with a CS rep on AM, and decided on just ordering the pre made RTR charcoal rims and Pirelli tire kit. I'm fine with it, really I'm not sure why I wanted a smaller tire on the front since I wasn't going with a smaller front rim.
