    275/35/18 or 275/40/18 on an 18x9 wheel fitment

    What up folks. Been reading through this forum and have been learning alot. My question is will 275/40 or 35 18's fit better on an 18x9 wheel with offset of 40mm on my 02 trans am. I will be putting on konis/stranos as well. Not sure if the 40's would look too tall and if they will rub. Will be putting full set all around so that I could rotate them. If anyone have those on their car some info and pics would be appreciated. New to the forum and having a ball reading these posts! Thanks

    I run 275/3518 on my rear. 40s would be too tall and would rub.

    i copy that. What about 285/35's all around. I guess that would be the max on a 18x9 wheel.

    Depends on what brand. If you ran, say, Nittos, you could run those as they run narrower than a different brand. 285 Nittos would be slightly narrower than, say, BFGs.

    Gonna get Michelin Pilot Super Sports Wanna fill the wheel well nice but not rub. Fronts and rear. Also without having to roll fenders.

    I think those should work as well since they have rolled corners on the sidewall. Keep us posted.
