It's not stock. I had 275 BF Goodrich KD on it and 275 BF Goodrich SuperSports after that. Neither hooked up. I got the 9" rims now so I was thinking wider tires in the back. I'm looking for some suggestions for what brand, or do you guys think I should stay with the same ones, just go wider?

A 9 inch rim is an upgrade, but 10.5's would have fit perfectly and been more what you want. If u want traction get some nitto 555's from AM

17x9 up front and 17x10.5 in back. looks sick. I think 17s look best on our cars and the 05+ look better with 18s. American Muscle usually has great combo deals on these.

The biggest I would go is 275/35/18 in the front. But that will rub when you lock the wheel left or right. So that would be an 18x9 wheel. For the back the biggest you could fit is an 17x11 or 18x10.5 with 315 tires. And If you take out the quad shocks you can fit 335 tires.

If you are going 17 inch. I would recommend 17x9 front with 265x40x17 and for the rear 17x10.5 with 315x35x17

If you are going 18 inch. I would reccomend 18x9 front with 265x35x18 and for the rear 18x10.5 with 315x30x18
