Will a 235/50/18 tire work ok with a 9 inch wide wheel. The tire brand is nitto and they list a 8 1/2 max wheel size for a 235 tire. The tire dealer said it would work ok but I am not sure. I am putting new wheels and tires on my 2012 Mustang next week. What is the widest tire size that would fit the Mustang in a 18 X9 wide wheel and not rub? I was also thinking of calling the dealer and changing to a 255/45/18 size. Any Help Appreciated. Best Regards, Forton

The larger tires made no effect on my mileage or 0-60 times. I switched back to the stock tires for winter. My best 0-60 time is 5.6 (I put a camera in the dash) I get about 31-32 mpg on the highway as long as I stay under 70 mph. I get 28 mpg at 80 mph.
