I have an 08 GT with 18" factory wheels that are currently running 235/50/18's. I would like to go to a wider tire and stay with the factory wheels. I have not been able to get a clear answer as to what is the widest tire that would fit the current wheel.
any help would be great.
the car is a garage queen and does not see snow or rain so I am looking for summer tires.
There is no clear answer. The wider you go the more you pinch in the sidewalls and the more adverse wear pattern you are apt to see. The lower the profile the worse the problem becomes. IMHO you could go with 255's and shouldn't see a problem. Drop down 5% on the profile and your overall dia should be similar and not throw off your spedo.
