So im getting new rims soon 17x9.5 and 18x10.5 and i want to run a nice size tire on the the rear. Im looking at BFG or Nitto street tires. I called some places about a 315/35/18 and BFG used to make it but dosent anymore. Nitto dosent make it at all. So what size can i run? Sorry if this sounds stupid.

It may be just as simple as going with another brand. I have noticed lately there are quite a few tire brands that are discontinuing certain size tires.
Probably due to not enough demand.
An easy way to find out is tirerack.com and use the search by size feature,,,it will bring most all brands available in that size.

Nevermind, I searched it and only found Kuhmo's that were a road racing type tire. Looks like you are stuck looking for another size similar.

you should actually get 315/30-18 for same overall diameter as stock size...
That's the size I use on the 18s and I use 315/35-17 on the 17s... same height... less sidewall, more wheel.
