    Tire size? all around

    I wanted to keep my wheels and tires so I could still rotate. Which tire size should I run with 18s all the way around? 275-35-18?

    That is the tire size i would use if I had 18's all the way around. But i guess you are not going to get directional tires????

    How wide are your 18's going to be? I'm running 275/35/18's on 18x10.5's and wish I had wider (it came with em on) so I'm gonna buy the 295's for the rear (the're bald), and then the front.

    If you want 275s all around, the 275/35/18 would be a good sizing.

    What can you afford to spend on all 4 tires, I can try to help you out if I know what you are looking to spend.

    The Nitto NT 555 Extreme would be a good choice from discount tire.

    If you could swing it, this is what I would recommend:

    http://www.discounttiredirect.com/di...37&rd=18&ar=35

    Best tires I have ever had. They run 239/tire from discount, but there is a $50 rebate from BFG, so you would be looking at ~$900 for all 4.

    I love that aggresive tread on those BFGs I might have to invest. Do you think they would hold up long, because I know they have a low tread wear being soft compound.

    They have a 300 tread wear rating. That is pretty good really. On the 17" KDWs I got about 20k miles, they have a 300 tread wear rating as well. How long they hold up will depend a lot on your driving style as well, plus rotating them in a timely manner will help also.

    Those are the tires I currently have, and love the aggressive pattern as well, get lots of compliments on it.

    I have had a set of BFG KDWs that lasted somewhere close to 3 years and around 30k miles. They still had tread on them when I just bought new tires, but they were starting to crack. They have also seen about 30 track passes 25 of which I have done a small burnout on. So I think they last fairly well good DD tire if you are in the warmer parts of the world.
