What would you say the widest tire size you could put on them?
+1 i would like to know. i think 275s might be a little large for em... am i right?
BridgeStone Potenzas RE050 states a 275/45-18 will go on a 8.5"-10".

Last one on the page, of course the data shows 0"-0" but its
really 8.5"-10" as it states in the brochure I recently got.
Even the Bridgestone site shows NO DATA for that size. Hmmmm....

(shopping towrap 8.5x18 polished bullitts in rubber as well)
The next lower size would be 255/45-18 in the RE050
This size also matches the stock REVS/MILE so no tuner
compensation would be needed for proper speedo display.

I think a lot of people agree that 265 is kind of the upper limit for a daily driver but since it's an odd size, 255 is what you see most often. 275 might fit but it is a bit large.
