What tires should I get

Hey guys. I'm getting a new set of tires. I have an 04 GT with a 2" drop on both sides. I want to get 285/40/18 in the rear and 275/40/18 in the front. Anyone know a website I can order those wide of tires? Would I have the roll the fenders to make the rears possible? Would they be too wide? Thanks!

You will not I'm that low and still have a lot of space to play with both front and rear and which size wheel are you going with in the rear? 18x9 or 18x10?

That's a 285/40 in the rear and still a good 1-1/2 - 2 left to clear

I'm running 18x10 in the rear. Know a website who has such a wide tire in a size 40?

Check tire rack they're pretty good and nitto NT555 will be in that size. Other people might chime in and tell you what they run in the rear so you have other brands to go with. But what kind of driving are you planning on doing on the tires?

I just plan to do some highway and city driving. Do the tread on those nittos last long?

It's a 300AA it's not the greatest but they last awhile pretty sure that's 30,000 miles they should be rated up to. Some one correct me if wrong though just going off memory when I bought them
