If we are being completely honest I would go 305 you will have to roll your fenders with 315s and trust me its not worth it.

The offset matters to a point but its still a matter of how much tire can fit under there

+53 offset
With 305
35 or 30?

Like I said the offset helps but the most rubber I would do is 305 and the bigger the offset the farther it will allow the tire to stick out. You saw the 315s clearly didn't fit and it was about a mm away from rubbing the inside. I'm just trying to help you save money and either one is good that's just the height its a matter of how you want it to fit in the wheel well.

Like I have 45s in the front and 40s in the back. The backs perfect but the fronts still don't feel tall enough to me

I just want to be able to fit it all in there.
The guy I spoke to said it'll fit up to a 325
But that probably won't be flush. It'll stick out a bit...
I've seen 295 on the 20x10s that AM offers.
So I don't see 305 as being too much more of a stretch, and the offset is greater on these wheels

I would do 305s just because of clearance issues. Even then haven't seen it done. Im just trying to help, I still think 305s would stick out but your call. This off sett is basically the whole tire and its wall to wall so your call

They aren't rtrs. I'm just telling you what I've felt with like I physically put those on I'm trying to tell you that amount of rubber might not fit into the fender well

I understand, and thanks for the tip.
Can you give me some wheel specs, just to clarify some things?

No wide enough
Plus I bought the wheels already
18x9 up front with 255
And 18x11 in the rear with 295
(I have I buy the tires) and 295 is waaaaay cheaper than 305

For sure 18s there are way more tire options! Yes they are 40s. And by gap to you mean do they stick out?

& cheaper! I just want to fill up the wheel space & I feel like 18's with 40s might not fill it up nicely! No I mean like from the tire to the fender!
