    While we're on the topic- does anyone know if a 285 or 295 will fit on a 17x9" wheel? I'd like a bit more meat but I want to keep the wheels I have.

    Are you sure about that? I didnt think 17x11s were offered for the Trans Am I thought they were 17x9's with 275/40/17

    Very dangerous.
    315's shouldn't be mounted on a 9" wheel.

    I feel the exact same way i really really like the 315's they're very sharp especially cause they come out of the fenders a little bit. I wanna keep my stock rims but i want 315's. Do they make stock rims in a bigger size for the car if so how much? Anybody have a pictures running 285's on stock rims?
