The dia I calculated was based on 19" wheels.
What's your existing tire size? Not that they have to match diameters, necessarily.

Here's a good site to compare existing vs. new wheel/tire set ups and it shows you how the offset changes things. It's just too bad it doesn't show it specific to a make and model car.

Online Wheel and Tyre Fitment Calculator. Offset, Tyre Stretch and Speedo Error | Will They Fit

Gotta go!!!!!

How do I determine the offset of my wheel without removing it?

At minimum, Vorshlag has the offsets required to fit an 18x11 on all four corners (other shops may also). They can help you take the next step.

Also getting a 315 wide Nitto on a 11" rim... that is not going to work. A 315 Nitto will be flush or just slightly bulged on a 10" wide rim. Going to need to go 335 or bigger if you can find one. Or get a different brand.

What brand and how wide can I get with 11inch rim without issues?

You'll have to look up the specs on Tirerack or get the actual specs of the tire you are buying from wherever you get it. You'll want section width and tread width etc...


I have had Nittos and their 315s are more like a 285 or 295 wide. They just run narrow.


Also remember that rim width is measured from inner lip to inner lip, it does not take the lip itself into account so if you have something with an 11" section width the rim will still "lip out" past the sidewall.
