i would say that if you have the 18x9 on the front i would go no bigger than 265 all you are doing is adding weight and price tag. but on the rear with an 18x10 i would say that you can most definetely go up to 295. but after that i have never seen on an 18x10. I am sure you can prob go to a 305 but i don't know about the 315

I've heard a 305 would fit the 10" rim. Click on the camera icon under my name to the left. Those are pics of my car and I have 18X10's in the back with 285/24/18 tires. They didn't make them any larger in the brand I went with (NITTO).

Just ordered my new rims today, along with new rubber. Got 18x9 in front with a 265/35 and 18x10 in back with a 295/35.....would have went bigger in back, but I'm lowered...so i was afraid of rubbing....althought my 315s on 17x10.5 worked perfectly...

Well if you can wait a week I just ordered 315's for my 18X10s, several people have told me it will be fine, but it not recommended by any manufacturer, but if a 335 will fit a 10.5 I don’t see why a 315 wont fit a 10. I be sure to post pics of 2" drop and rear tires.

I hope not, I do own my own shop, so any body mods I must do wont be too big of a deal, cause I don’t want to cut up my Pilot Sports, at $375 a pop!! They should be in tomorrow, but I’m leaving for Vegas at 1:30 not sure if I got time to install, but I really don’t want to wait
