I am like a deal magnet, i might be unlucky in alot of areas but when it comes to deals, they come to me

I found a set of bbk short headers and offroad xpipe for 400 and the guy put them on for free.

I called the guy and we agreed on $350 for the rims, I am picking them up today , I am so excited, i can hardly hold myself, i can't pick them up until 6 pm today

275's on a 9" wheel will rock nicely.

Squeezing an overly wide tire onto any given wheel width tends to reduce steering precision and in particular dulls turn-in steering response when it's done up front. I don't think I'd ever mount 285-wide tires on anything less than 10" wide wheels.

Steven - Putting 295's or 305's on 9" wide rims is flat-out wrong and won't even look good to anybody who knows much about tires. Don't listen to anybody who tells you different; these tires are not supposed to look like 1960's 83-profile tires with huge amounts of sidewall bulging out past the wheel flanges.

Awesome thank you, would you suggest i do 255 in the front for example and close 285 in the back? I do wish he had a set of 10s , i would be the happiest man alive , but pickers can't be choosers

I like my razors and they look and perform great with the right sizes.

I am running:
Nitto 555 Extreme - front: 255/45 R18
Nitto 555 Extreme - rear: 285/40 R18

I did have a staggered 40mm offset in the front and 24mm offset in the rear, but the 24mm caused some rubbing so I swapped them out and went 40mm all the way around. What offset are the ones your looking at buying?

Here is what those tires sizes look like..

btw the above picture was with the 24mm rear offset rims, the 40mm offset brought them in flush and look much better

On 9's, I'll still hold my recommendation for rear tire size to no more than 275/40's. They'd be a little over 1/4" shorter than the 255/45-18's up front, but I highly doubt you'd ever notice the difference between those two tire heights once they're on the car.

Having the 285's, I would have to agree, especially when you try and get your car aligned
