Re: RIMS

you buy deep dish rims so you can run a wider tire, you dont buy deep dish rims so you can run the same size tire as the front have on the back.

Get the right size tires or dont do it. If you go with a 10inch wide rim out back run a 295 or a 305 at least.

Re: RIMS

17x10 rims will always need wider tires than 17x9 unless you want to have a lot of curb rash on your wheels

The 245's have to be narrow on the 9" rim...the 275 is the right size...and a 245 is basically an inch narrower.

Re: RIMS

You have a valid point ,Actually i wish i had bought 255's all around . The 245's are slightly narrow and the 275's are slightly wide . Next time i buy tires i'll probably do 255's .

Negative. 275s are the right size...they fit the rim and offer curb protection. 265's are really the very narrowest you want to run on a 9" rim. 275 is the best fit...and the proper fit.

Re: RIMS

if its an SN95 then 275's will be fine in the front

its its a fox you'll probably want to go with 255's in the front

if its an 05+ then i'd just sell the car and put the rims on an SN95 or a FOX
