Wanting to know if anyone is putting this size tire on a stock rim? They have a little smaller sizes if I really need to move down. Anyone have any pictures at all? I have a 2014 GT with BMR drag springs that lowers it.

I have them but not on stock wheels. I have them on 10" rims. There are a couple stock width. not sure how they be on regular but the Brembo wheels I think would be fine. They grip pretty good but i only have for track and only been once since put on. I am lowered on Eibach Sportline (very low) and all good there.

No pics on car though man sorry.

The approved rim width for this tire size is typically 9.0" to 11.0".
I'm guessing you may have 8" wide rims.???

Yeah mine are 8 inches wide :banghead:
I guess you have the 235/50R18 x8" wide rim.
So without going to wider rims you're pretty much limited to 245 or 255/45R18.
That would be like going from a 9-1/4" wide tire to a 10" wide tire.
Anything wider would require wider rims. I suppose you could do backs only.:whistling:

The tires profile(sidewall height) does have a bearing on the allowable rim widths.
For example, many tires will allow a slightly narrower rim when the sidewall is taller. Here's one example where a 275/40R18 recommends 9"-11" rims where the 275/35R18 recommends 8"-11".
Bottom line is try to stick with the tire manufacturers recommended range.

EDIT: I should point out that a 275/35R18 would change your tire diameter by over 3%, which is not typically recommended unless you correct your speedometer accordingly.
