i'm also going to go out on a limb and guess that those wheels are 20's. the bigger wheel will make that look easier to get since you can run a slightly taller tire to help fill the wheel well out.

15 inch Bogarts. Can't recall offset. Needed relocation brackets for rears. Alas, although a few folk claim they run them on the street, not designed for street use. Car undergone complete rebuild since these pics, but wheels are same.

808 i like your tire selection but what i don't get is just like.....the front tires are larger in diameter than rears, why the tire/wheel combo always seems to come out when you stagger, here's a link so you see ......you have to compare with your stock so used mine ...19's but used your 2 for difference and as you can see the front larger, wierd, what i have now same way i have 295/30/20 rear and 255/35/20 front , front taller. actually when go to link put in your original size at top my stock of coarse was 245/45/19 all way around.

ever use a tire calculator stud? what I said was exact! seems everytime you go from same size all way around to a staggered set the set up that is a choice in a package always makes front tire larger, why don't you try the tool on that website instead of trying cut someone done!

Hey there, Sport! Before you jump someone else for not knowing what you are talking about, try learning how to size tires yourself. Both sets of tire sizes you use as examples have exactly the same OD front and rear. The number after the / in the tire size is an aspect ratio for sidewall height based on the width of the tire so a 30 sidewall and a 35 sidewall can be exactly the same if the tread width is different...

And I'm not defending the previous poster because I'm sure he can defend himself...I was just about to post a reply to your post when you chimed in with this drivel. I was going to be nicer until I saw your response to him.

Well, I suppose my comment was two-fold. One for the broken grammar that made your post next to incomprehensible, and two for exactly what Mike Maples said.

So, without trying to "cut you done," all I can say is this: +1 to Mike's post.

ok give you that, subtract 3 posts back, your saying the calculator is wrong, i disagree, front tires are taller, I'll leave it at that and not comment on this topic any further, take it up with 1010tires tell them they are mistaken.

Calculators are a pretty good tool but tire manufacturer's specs are a lot better place to start.

You will notice that no manufacturer makes a 285/41ZR18 or a 255/39ZR18 because they just label them to the nearest "5" for the aspect ratio. Both B.F. Goodrich tires in question are spec'd by the manufacturer as 27" OD because they make them to match for people who want staggered sets.

And a difference in OD of less than 1/10th of an inch would never be visible even if the tire was sized exactly as calculated. Some manufacturer's tolerances may be greater than that for the same size tire and with all 4 tires the same size you will likely get that much difference between the fronts and rears before the first rotation.

I apologize for my tone...it's been a long hot day. But I'll stick with my comment about tire sizes.

I'm not disagreeing with you, and I'm not splitting hairs, but after going from 19's to 20's, having the speedo get out of sync, you start googling , research, whatever, paying to have one tune to calibrate the 20's, another tune for the stock 19's cause a switch in winter, maybe I just read into these things too much, I try too trust manufacturers but when you see these calculators you second guess. sorry for all have a good night, I apoligize for being illiterate, and sorry for typo's.

Mike, again, taking the words right out of my mouth. Calculators are nothing more than a tool. They should be used as a reference point, not a definitive answer. 1~2 mil's isn't noticeable, especially considering that, as a diametric measurement, you'll only account for half of the difference on each side. Every tire can be different from the manufacturer, but the tolerances are hardly noticeable.

To reiterate what was said above 255/45/18 and 285/40/18 are exactly the same 27" OD per Tire Rack. They also happen to be the same size tires as on early GT500s
