Default Largest rear tire

This has probably been asked a million times.. Whats the largest tire I can fit in the rear? I also need what rim size as well, with offset and rim width.

Are you talking width, height or both? Also, are you lowered or on a stock suspension? Remember that going with taller (larger OD tires) is equivalent to regearing so choose wisely.

I have a spreadsheet that you can load your stock wheel size including offset and any other combination and it'll give you both data and figure comparisons which should help. PM me with your e-mail and I can forward it.

I'm currently running a 305/45 18 on an 18X10 inch rim with +40mm offset. I'm lowered about an inch and a half in the rear. No problems with rubbing.

Dont forget tire brands differ in true width. Nitto tires are not as wide as other brands the same size.

Black_N_Blown's running 315 NT05s in the rear on 20x11" wheels. Plus he's got a 2"+ drop. Its tight, but you could probably fit 325 in the rear

Didn't Diabolical fit ridiculously wide tires on the back of his car with a little modification to the sway bar or something? I'll see if I can find the thread.

I did have M&H 325s on the rear at one time. Car had very limited street use. They poked out the side, just a tad



For the strip, car had some humongus Hoosiers. Actually had to take a hammer to the fender wells at the strip, because they were rubbing.

Get an idea from this pic, just how fat they were, also 29 inches tall



compared to stock

with your current drop, I would say you have one of two options.
295/45/18 I have seen with up to 1.5in of drop, so i am sure they would work or a 305/40/18 should go in there without modification...both of which nitto currently sells.
offset should stay around the 40mm mark to insure that they don't rub.
Personally if I was you, I would go 285/40/18. With a drop they look the best imo...check out member Dprived's ride to get a look!
hope this helps....and

GET THE CHROME COBRA R'S...THEY WOULD LOOK HOT ON THAT BLUE!
that is all...lol.
