Amr wheels

So I'm thinking of buying some amr wheels 18"... What's a good wheel and tire ratio/setup for a new edge?

I went with a staggered setup but I got 255/40/18 up front and 295/35/18 in the back. Not sure if your setup will be staggered or not.

18x9s up front are good on a NE, 18x8s are better for a SN95 but that's not what you have.... You can do a whole setup from AM/Tirerack for about $1200 shipped and customize the tire sizes/get a much better tire tire than the Sumis vs the canned AM wheel/tire combos.

Example, you can do the AMR wheels for under $600 via AM with the 6% forum discount (PM a rep) and then these guys on closeout for $580 plus shipping from Tirerack.

http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires....omCompare1=yes

http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires....10XL&tab=Specs

That'll retain your stock wheel diameter and fit perfect on an 18x9/18x10 combo.

That is also just an example but Hankook is a really good brand of tire. If you need all seasons look at Generals or Continentals.

Put the money away and buy all at once, don't just buy it piecemeal. Or look for a good deal on one of the myriad forums. I sold my old rims/tires for $600 locally. The 555Rs were probably good for another season and the rims were damn near mint.

So if I get 18x9 and 10s ... What tires size do you recommend? Remember it's a daily driver

I've seen people
With 305s on the back but it looks a little bubbly IMO. So I went with a 295/35. It'll be a nice wide tire with a smaller sidewall. Most companies recommend you go with a 285/I think 40

The very first spec on each tire listed in those links is the size. I would stay pretty much flush to your rim. For me, this was a 275 wide BFG out back and a 235 up front. I have 18x10s out back and 18x8s up front, for 18x9s I'd run 255s. BFGs run big though and I'm running slightly oversized as far as height.

Perfect sizes to run in all seasons is 255/40/18 up front and 285/35/18 out back in a General or Continental. I run summer tires because I drive my truck in the winter. Truck needs tires too lol. Going to go Generals for that. General makes a damn good tire and the price is right.
