Re: new bigger tires

My 04 is running a 285/40/18 Nitto right now.

And on the inside corner is a peice of the plastic that will rub if I turn way to hard or go through a dip wrong.

Find a tire calculator and compare the width, and diameter to that and that should answer your question.

Im on a stock suspension btw, but either my sub box weighs so damn much or my rear shocks have been blown since 40k miles and my rear doesn't seem to sit near as high as other peoples do lol I get a lot of questions about that.

But also FYI, I ran a 285/35/18 sumo tire before w/ no problems at all.

Also you need to reasearch that tires size and see if it will work on your rim width or not. Wrong size tires on a rim can be deadly
