    Rims and tire size options

    Deployment time has come once again!!! All that makes me think of is the personal Christmas I can have when I get back. That being said I really need new tires and want new rims. I wanted to know if 275 in the rear is possible on a 17inch rim. and if so what width does the rim have to be to support that. I would also like to accomplish maximum width without rolling the fenders. Whatever insight yall have would be most appreciated.

    You should be fine with a 17x9.5 wheel.

    How wide can the tire be with respect to the rim and fenders?

    I would say a 275 tire is about all you can put on a stock 04 GTO rim.
