If you do suspension work on your rear you can go 315 on a 10.5 rim. Without the suspension you'll scalp your tires sidewalls

I have 17x10.5 with 315s in the rear and I have no rubbing issues. I'm also have it lowered 2" with no issues.

Re: Tire Size

I have 295s on a 18x10.5 rim and have no issues with rubbing or anything. I wanna go wider.. I heard Nitto runs 10mm smaller than their measurements, so I might do a 305 Nitto555r. Should have no issues.. If you do; just roll the fenders a bit.

Mines lowered and the torque will drop the pass side low enough that it catches the tire. I built my suspension stiffer and raised it. Now there's no problem
