Ahhh that explains why I was having so much trouble finding 265/30/18's.

Thanks for your help with my tire questions. It definitely helped me zero-in on my wheel and tire selection.

Boy, I have done a fair amount of research here and cannot find out if you have a 7" or 8" wheel, but guessing 8". You have 235/55/17 tires and you will not be able to run as wide as a 275 on your existing wheels. I see a 245/50/17" wheel that will fit either a 7" or 8" wheel, so that is an option.

The only way to run a 275 is purchase wider wheels. You can see your basic max size options near the top of this page.

I was told that they were 17x9 wheels


Nevermind. I walked outside and took a look at my wheels/tires and realized that my 235 pirellis are actually a little big for my wheel. No way are they 17x9.

Ya.... they are gonna be 8" at the very widest

PM me a pic of the tire looking down the side so I can see the wheel relative to the tire profile.

Not sure if that is what you meant, but it looks like it sticks out about .5 inches.

Ha ha.....

A little closer than I wanted, but is enough to say you are running an 8" wheel for sure. This means, a 245 is really all you are gonna be able to fit on your existing wheels.

Alright, thanks!

I was hoping that they were 17x9 though. Would have loved some 275/40/17s.

Great thread. We really need to have a similar thread where people can post pictures to see all different sized tires on various wheels.

We do... it is called Post your aftermarket wheels

As for different size tires on wheels, there is really not a whole lot of variable and retain a proper fitment. More often than not, one puts too wide a tire for a wheel and can result in poor turn-in response in the least and major safety concerns in the extreme.

PS. Thanks
