This is a discussion on tire size within the Wheels and Tires forums, part of the General Help category; would 315/35/17's fit on my stock wheels for my ws6? or are they too wide? thanks...

    too wide. 275 is the largest you can go safely

    275's are barely parrallel to the wheels. Wider than that isn't a big deal. I've run 295's on the factory 9 inch wheels without a problem. Actually gives a nice sidewall cushion for a little wheel rash protection. They only measure a total of about 11.5 to 11.6 inches of section width. That's only about 1.25 inches of sidewall per side that is past the rim. Not a big deal.

    Jumping to a 315 only increases the section width another inch overall,,,about 1/2" per side. I've never had a problem with it, and actually prefer that little safety cushion, to each their own.
