Size depends on the brand of tire also. Some run wider than normal and others run narrower than normal. For example a 265 BFG is pretty much the same as a 295 or 305 Nitto

Bullitts are better than Bullets

BFG comp 2s. 255/40/18 up front 275/40/18 out back. Front stays stock diameter and is nice and flush on the 9" rim, rear is a half inch taller than stock giving you a little more sidewall for launching and ride comfort and will not rub on a lowered car. Bfgs run wide so yes, 255 and 275 work well for those rim widths.

Just because I give you advice, doesn't mean I know more than you. Its just means I've done more stupid ****.

I have Nitto 265/35/18 and Drag radial 305/35/18 on the rear fits perfectly
