    [B][/B] ANYONE RUNNING 275s IN THEIR REAR

    I believe running the Nitto 275 DRs will work fine on the stock GTO 17" rims, but I want to make sure. Is anyone running this setup and can anyone comment on how well it works?

    I ran 315 DRs on my 99 SS and it was a beast, knocked off many 4.7 second 0-60s (Gtech) after I put these on, before I barely could knock off 5.0 second 0-60s. The GTO desperately needs to get the power to the ground, this is the way, at least during the Summer time.

    Any info will help, thanks.

    From day one some people have been able to and others had them rub. A lot of that had to do with the rear cradle alignment. Secondly the OEM springs sag over time so depending on how much height you're cars lost it may make a difference.

    I have put them on stock wheels(275) nittos and had no issues if the rear springs sag get a new set or install some drag bags.

    Nice, thanks... I just finished my exhaust install so I will be needing some real grip in the rear...

    ok, well while we are on the subject of rear tire sizes, does anyone know what the max width you can go on stock rims WITHOUT having them widened?

    Found this. No mention of widening nor do I see any evidence of widening.

    If you are skeptical, then go with 265/40/17 to be safe.

    Well that was my original question, it was answered in post #3, you can run up to 275s on the stock rims...

    As a point of reference I ran 315s on stock Camaro SS rims (9.5" wide), they were awesome.
