    That makes me think... my offset is 50mm but the rim is 1/2 wider. I really don't see how the tire gets so close to the lip on your quarters. Is the other side the smme way? Also could be the different body from a camato to a ta

    I had a real tough tme picking a tire size. Like you said everything that comes in that size is almost always a DR. I wouldn't have minded nittos but not at the prices they were offered at. I wanted something that I could put some miles on to justify the price. One of the reasons I went 335. The prices for those weren't outrageous when you comare them to DRs you're looking at now. Trust me I didn't just go that size for looks. There really isn't much offered in those sizes let alone cost wise.

    To tell you the truth I really don't know. I was in your spot and really had a tough time. Only 315 I considered was the nitto and then voted against it. I'm really curious as to what you end up doing because I was stumped

    Ill try and find something better when I get on my computer at home

    Sorry correction it was a nitto 335. I figured if they ran more narrow they would be more like a 315. The other option was a MT 315 which is what came on my wheels in the first place and after a day in the rain my mind was made up against them. Steady 30-35mph and wheel spin like crazy

    My fronts are 245 michelins bu they are getting pretty worn down. I think I'm gonna get 275s or 285s up front soon for mine. Personally I think that's more than big enough, just my personal opinion. Plus those sizes are cheaper. The rears will be your biggest problem.

    it just sucks cause the 275s on the fronts now are kinda stretched as well to fit on the 18x10 rim. looks like i may have to go with a 30 sidewall. tirerack actually has some options in that size. maybe the michelin pilot sport ps2

    Hmmm...I would have sworn a 275 tire would fit on a 10 inch rim without a problem.

    you probably don't want a 35 sidewall with a 335.

    a 30 on a 335 is probably pretty damn close to the same size as a 35 on a 295.

    if you search for a 335/30 you should have slightly more options than a 335/35

    yea im definitely going to have to go with a 30 sidewall. that should give me some more selection. just need to decided between a 305 and a 315
