    Not sure you're going to find too many pictures of that. 315 is too wide for a 9.5" wheel. I can show you 295's on a 10" wide wheel though.

    only way you will see that safely and without the ugly buldging sidewalls is the nitto 555r DRs..they tend to run small..my 315s are on ttm's that are 10.5 and you can tell there is some room to go bigger to sit flush with the lip of the rim..so nitto 315s are like 290-295s (my guess)

    you are looking at 4.34" of sidewall ..however as they are smaller than true 315s i wouldnt doubt the sidewalls to be 4" flat.

    315/35/17 = roughly 26" tall
    17" wheel = 17" tall.


    Leaves roughly 9" (hehehe) of tire. Split that for top and bottom.
    You want less than 3" of sidewall....you want 19's.

    if you are wanting 3" sidewall with 315/xx/17s..you will need to find either 30s or 25s in terms of sidewalls for those dimensions

    315/30/17 = 3.72
    315/25/17 = 3.1

    mind you this will be incredibly unsave

    hahahahahaha you guys are all missed yep in the freakin head lol

    lets clear this up some lol is it going to be a 4.## or 3in? thats a big diff.....i know i know, im being picky but this is going on a protouring 79 t/a that im building and i want to get the right look.....im already pissed i cant fit a 11in rim and they dont make a 10in in the rim i want unless i go with 15s and that aint happening sooooo we/i am stuck with a 17x9.5 in the rear and 17x8 in the front

    BTW the car is lowered 2inchs all around

    as long as i can get a good 3inchs or more of sidewall on a 9.5 rim without it bulding like a mofo
