Tires

What is the widest tire you can put on the stock rims. 235-55 18? And will this effect handling and such?

I'm at a 265/50-18 on the rear and had a 255/45-18 on the front but at a 245 now. No problems at all.

The stock cs bullits. The 8.5" rim I believe it is. Says it's rated for the 235's but have no problem at all with the 265's. Even considered 275's but it wouldn't be safe. It would have too much sidewall flex. It would be fine if your a straight line guy but I like to carve just as much as I do going straight.

Re: Tires

yea for an 8.5 rim width a 265 is probably right on the money
