zim....for not much more you can go with 285/40's on the back. i plan to put 285's on all four of my 17x9" wheels. i want the extra little bulge to protect from curb dammage.

i had 275's on 17/10.5's. and it looks HORRIBLE, they turn in soo much its rediculous no to mention the fact that anything that goes near your wheel WILL hit the rim. i am laying down the law. AT LEAST 305's, i am one to let a person do as they deem fit .. but the tires dont fit so dont do it you WILL regret it sooooo much you have no idea. i will get a picture to post for you . its UGLY.

I really do not want 315s on my car. The 275 wide tires are ok for up to an 11 inch rim. I wouldnt mind doin 285s on the rear, but jesus christ i look at evans new tires and theyre just way bigger than i want. I like fat tires but i dont want them hangin out lookin like ive got a v10 under the hood to utilize all the rubber. Its just too much for my slow v6

the reason i staggered the rim sizes was because they dont do the deep dish on the 9 inch wide ones... only the 10" wide. I already upgraded to 18s because i didnt want the 17x10.5... id rather have 18x10 (18s will look sweeter anyway) Ill probly put like a 285 on the rear, and 275s up front

well a 275 will look very out of place and narror on a 10 wide rim true a 315 tire is VERY wide....but look at the over lap he has on those 10 inch rims its VERY little a 305 woudl barly cover the rim lip you will be sorry if you dotn get at least 305's

thanks for the help heres a 275 on a 10.5 rim. if you look at the ground you can see how far in the tread actually is from the rim. also this is half on a curb half not ..and this side is on the curb so the tire should be slightly pushed out.. just to enphasize how horrible these looked

also i dont know if you happened to read my other post if you put 275's on the front .. im not sure how similar to my front suspension yours is(2001) but i had pretty bad rubbing on my sway bars, a 7/32 spacer fixed enough to live with

its not about the money... its about the fact that 12.4 inches of rubber on each wheel is fuckin rediculous. Ill get 295s... but i dont want an extra inch on each tire. My car wont move if i go much bigger... theyll weight too freakin much.
