    HELP Tonight!! 265/35-18"

    I bought 265/35-18" for my 1995 TA and not knowing alot about tires I got these today. Curious if anybody has these sizes on theirs now? the stock are 275/50-16 and they look of course a lot bigger. Will my 265/35-18" on 18" C5 rims look funny? Just wasn't sure and getting installed in the morning? My car is not lowered at all so will these look funny?

    You're right I didn't mean 275 they are 245. I take it you wouldn't do it? They might look o.k. but didn't want to mount them and won't be able to return them? Thanks

    What is funny about them? They look lower than 40's. I have some 35's alot of people run with 35's just because of clearance issues.

    It was just hard to get used to other than stock. I really like them now. I do plan on dropping car but its really fine now. The nexen tires really grip and handle well and I'm gald I bought them. I'll post pictures Monday. Taking car to Trans Am Nationals Sat. and we'll have plenty pictures of the event when I return.
