    if you are lowered i know you have to be careful with the width of the tires in the rear

    i have 295s on a 18x10.5 and am lowered 1.5" in the rear. i rub a tiny bit. you are probably going to have to go with a 30 for the sidewall to not rub on the fender. my buddy just put 19s on his SS and he went with 285s.

    you know there is a inch difference in overall diameter between the two...if you drag a lot you will want a larger sidewall..however a larger sidewall brings clearance into play. dont shop on price alone..or you will regret it
