i don't usually say this but...

DAS PHAT zim. is there a drool smiley? let's find out. :drool:
you seriously need a 315 or wider tire. you can't rotate them anyways, so why not get the right sized tire for the wheel? you will live to regret 275's if you put them on a 10" wheel! if you do, i will bet a shiny quarter within a month you will complain here about curb rash.

Why are you worried about to much tire anyways? Just get the right size tire and make sure you dont ruin those expensive rims

if you stick a 275 tire all around WHY DID YOU STAGGER THE RIM SIZES it makes NO SINCE! lol and a 275 o a 10 wide is the same as putting a 205 on an 8 wide OMG lol spend the extra money on a 315 you paid extra for the added inch on the rims now USE it lol dotn come crying when you curb a rim and it look like crap and the tire is very narrow, look at the red 03 cobra teh guy just put 315s on his 10 wide rim, they fit about perfect imagine those tires over an inch more narrow

zim....for not much more you can go with 285/40's on the back. i plan to put 285's on all four of my 17x9" wheels. i want the extra little bulge to protect from curb dammage.

i had 275's on 17/10.5's. and it looks HORRIBLE, they turn in soo much its rediculous no to mention the fact that anything that goes near your wheel WILL hit the rim. i am laying down the law. AT LEAST 305's, i am one to let a person do as they deem fit .. but the tires dont fit so dont do it you WILL regret it sooooo much you have no idea. i will get a picture to post for you . its UGLY.

to post pics go down and click manage attachments, then select what you want to upload.

I really do not want 315s on my car. The 275 wide tires are ok for up to an 11 inch rim. I wouldnt mind doin 285s on the rear, but jesus christ i look at evans new tires and theyre just way bigger than i want. I like fat tires but i dont want them hangin out lookin like ive got a v10 under the hood to utilize all the rubber. Its just too much for my slow v6

the reason i staggered the rim sizes was because they dont do the deep dish on the 9 inch wide ones... only the 10" wide. I already upgraded to 18s because i didnt want the 17x10.5... id rather have 18x10 (18s will look sweeter anyway) Ill probly put like a 285 on the rear, and 275s up front

well a 275 will look very out of place and narror on a 10 wide rim true a 315 tire is VERY wide....but look at the over lap he has on those 10 inch rims its VERY little a 305 woudl barly cover the rim lip you will be sorry if you dotn get at least 305's

thanks for the help heres a 275 on a 10.5 rim. if you look at the ground you can see how far in the tread actually is from the rim. also this is half on a curb half not ..and this side is on the curb so the tire should be slightly pushed out.. just to enphasize how horrible these looked

also i dont know if you happened to read my other post if you put 275's on the front .. im not sure how similar to my front suspension yours is(2001) but i had pretty bad rubbing on my sway bars, a 7/32 spacer fixed enough to live with
