    295 wide tire question

    Hi guys I need new rear tires for my 01 Z28. I currently have 17 inch Z06 rims on there with 285/40/17 Nitto Xtremes. Im think its a 9 inch rim but am not sure and was wondering if I could fit 295's on it since there is all ready 285's on there.. Thanks a bunch

    Depends on the tire brand. Check tireracks website-they give you what width will fit on what rim size

    on 17s with a 11in rim you can put 315s on but a 305 will do you just as good stick with 17s 18s are too damn expensive

    There not original, but I think they are 9.5 inch rims to be honest with ya. I called tire rack and they said 295's wont fit on a nine inch rim but I didnt ask em bout a 9.5 inch. Also they only carry one manufacturer (kumho) that even makes 295's which is kinda stupid. Im gonna take my tire off and check when I change my oil this weekend, You think 295/35/17's would fit on 9.5 inch rims??

    you took the words right ouy of my mouth, 17 looks great, when you move up to 18 plus you pay alot more all the way around, tires and wheels almost double or more,

    tire size 295

    hey man if you have wheels that have a rolled lip instead of the step in orig style, the rolled lip gives you a wider rim, for example i use to roll with intros wheels out of cali, 17x10 fit 315 nicely, i sold those wheels and got inexpensive american racing with orig step in lip, so i had to go with 17x10.5 to fit 315 nicely, so just to let you know

    If it's 9.5 I think you could make em fit.
    But I haven't see 295/40/17 tires
    It could be expensive
    285/40/17 are comun tires
