    Now... i gather you are dead set on 285's on the rear, if you want them get them. HOWEVER they are too small for an 11" wheel to look right, you want something wider, just go 315 and dont doubt your decision in the long run.
    +1 on the multiple same thread shit.

    Whys did I read this whole tread. Oh yeah it's fucking winter and I'm bored. Just buy tires and drive. Falken zr are popular here for the price. There's a couple of guys that changed their stock tires for those and said that they are a lot better. Falken zr I think but if you look on their web site you'll see the onesthat will fir your car. Oh and don't forget to buy tires....

    I hear idiot all the time. Doesn't bother me.




    10.0" ... +38 to +54 mm .... 275, 285, 295
    10.5" ... +38 to +50 mm .... 285, 295, 305, 315
    11.0" ... +45 to +56 mm .... 305, 315, 335
    actually a 285 will fit PROPERLY mounted on a 11" rim, while a 335 won't be PROPERLY mounted on a 11" rim as you state.
    335 require 12"-13" wide rims.

    I still think you shouldn't try to put ppl down and then provide faulty information, that makes you look like a prick/a-hole.
    That's why forums exist... ppl look for information and want to ask questions... and make sure they do it right before spending their $.

    does that mean us? lol

    regardless of all of this, I think everyone can agree on one matter here.

    11" rim you will want to run 315's any less is going to look and perform like shit. It seems to me that the OP has asked this many times because he doesn't want to face the fact that its the truth. Shell out the cash and buy some good tires. You have to pay to play.

    I just can't imagine a 285 fitting on an 11" wheel properly. I suppose the bead would seal just fine...but it would have to leave a large lip exposed.

    when I bought my car it had 275's on the 11" wheel and it looked like ass. The tires sholders actually leaned in like / \ on the wheel. 285's are not much wider and would still do the same thing

    excellent, well Nitto 555 is what I recommend unless you've already added some mods and if you intend on heads/cam or more 555R's should do it.

    Thank god. Please mount them ASAP.

    Eugenio, its no secret that this kid has beatin this topic to death. People tell him, 315. He starts another thread.... 285??? NO, 315.

    Why dont you Euginio, tell him what YOU put on your 11" wheels? I bet its a damn 315. Why in the hell anyone would pay money for an 11" wheel and then insist on putting 285's on them is beside me. Hopefully you mount those tires, wheatever size... round or square... hoping they get mounted and perform well for you.

    I would get the 555DRs 315s.

    I've got the 555s on my TA and they dont hook well at all. The stock Goodyear RSAs hooked better and they had less tire on the ground.
