Biggest tire on 9inchs

Hey guys.

So what's the fattest tire I could fit on a 9 inch rim?

Without rubbing? Probably 285. I am not sure about 315s though. But I'd recommend 275s to be safe.

Discount Tire told me 275s were the max, plenty of people running 3 15's though.

I have 275's on my stock brembo wheels and it's perfect.

255 in front and 305 on 10's in the back. I had 285s all around and I think this set up rides much better. Motegi racing wheels

Are those 19s?
I was trying to avoid getting new rims. It's a lot of $!

Agreed, but I like the stock brembo wheels and I'm not a fan really of 20's and I can't justify spending 1500-2k on wheels the same size when there's others things I want more for the same amount. But 275's look great to me.

There's no way you can safely fit 315s on 9" wide wheels. As far as what will fit, you will need to check each manufacturers' specs since the sizes and fitment vary.

BTW - 19" tires are insanely expensive, it was cheaper for me to get new wheels and tires than just tires for my 19s, so I sold them.

Well I also got a rockstar deal on 18" wheels. These were on clearance at AM and I pick up a full set for $400, tires were about another $800. I was looking at $1000-1200 for just 19" tires.

18" NT05

19" NT05

An extra $100+ every time you buy tires adds up in the long run, and there is a much more limited selection of 19s than 18s and 20s. Just be advised that 20" wheels will look a bit more at home (especially at stock ride height) but will also weigh more, which means the car will be slower. Conversely, 18s will look a bit small inside the massive wheel wells, but weigh less so there is a slight performance advantage.

This is true. I have BFG super comp 2 tires I believe is what they are called. 275's on 19's and they go for $220 a piece mounted and they perform really good for day to day driving

I agree...the BFG's 275/40/19 are awesome tires. I ran a 12.7 with them and i only have axelbacks. They handle well in wet too
