    Yeah 18x9-9.5' wide wheels need at bare minimum a 275/35 tire.
    Wheels are still Bad Ass though.

    Drop it 1.25-1.5" it'll take out that huge gap. Other than that it looks nice and clean.

    Thanks everbody for the compliments. I think it looks pretty bad ass. Definetly better then what I had before.

    Rims are TSW Cadwells
    Price wise they were $285 a rim
    18 x 9.5
    Tires: BF GoodRich
    245-40-Zr18

    That was the the size that was basically dead on compared to stock so my speedo and all that is not off. I don't really understand all the tire size crap of what I can and can't do so I had to play it safe.

    I'll probally leave it stock height. Michigan roads suck. I can barely clear some things as it is now.

    Looks good man. Really dig those wheels. The width shouldn't hurt you as long as your overall diameter doesn't change, your speedo won't be affected. I switched from the 245/50/16's? stock to 275/40/17's front and 315/35/17's on the rear. Speedo is dead on at 70 according to my gps.

    If you don't want to take em back (dunno if you can) just enjoy the shit out of those and upgrade as you burn em down.

    275/35/18 would have been the correct size for the wheel and speedo calibration. I know because that's what I have on mine.

    BTW if the tires are within .200 of stock there won't be any speedo problems.
