    I had a 285 on 9.5 it was kinda wide for that rim.
    315s should fit perfect!

    Those will fit just fine on the rim. Not sure if you will have to make any modifications to get them to fit in the wheel well though.

    it all depends on the offset of the wheel.

    i have TT on my car with nitto 315s. if your car is stock height your going to have issues around the bump stop and the wheel. if you lower it you will clear but get an on car adj panhard rod. depending if you go that route you may have to roll your fenders depending what springs you put in.

    i lowered my car for it to clear but on my RS i had the zr1 11 rims and i used a 5 pound hammer and beat it back a little ways just to keep the lip from snagging on it.
