    just installed 315s

    i just had my 315s installed on the rear and they look bad ass, sorry i dont have any pics yet but i will soon. anyways they fit really good since i already cut the bump stops and used the bfh mod. everything is good right now but the only thing im worried about is the fender hitting the tire when i hit a big bump so id advise everyone running 315s to make sure their springs and shocks are good. other than that id say go for it it looks awsome!!!!! really turns heads!!!!

    Uh, just wondering, I have those 315's too and did nothing, did you need to do the mods or you just did them to be safe? I heard with the correct offset rims, the t/a's should need those to make 315's work...welcome to the club! t/a's w/315's rock bro.

    315 nitto drs wont rub but 315 BFG's will rub when you do a hard turn. Check on the inner side of the tire now and then to be safe.

    after putting the rims and tires on it really doesnt look like i really needed to mod anything but i did it just in case. the rims are 10.5 in the rear w/45mm offset so the tires dont even come close to rubbing the inner fender well at all, not even on hard turns.the tires are bfg g force directionals, i didnt go w/drags because its a daily driver and iv heard people say they have probs driving in the rain w/ 315 drag radials.

    yeah the BFG DR's are not good in the rain but the Nitto is a decent rain tire.

    I've got em and haven't had to do the mods. I'm lowered with a full rear suspension set up.

    It depends on what tires you are running to whether you will need to clearance the wheel wells or not. (or run spacers)

    The Nitto's are the narrowest 315's available, so in most cases nothing is needed. We should post other tire brands that fit without mods as well.

    It also depends on the offset, as to whether the rim can hit the bump stop or not.

    putting 315s on the fronts turns more heads than in the rear.
    you should do it... better handling and cornering.
