    you will find a very slim tire selection in a 315/35/18. the few that are available are radials. i was forced to go with 315/30/18

    Another thing to think about is maybe going to a 295/35. Many more options to choose from and a bit cheaper as well. Just something to consider if yours is a daily driver.

    yea it was a real pain selecting tires for me. the one thing youll have to make sure is that the overall diameter of front tire isn't taller than the rear.

    I think BFG is the only one that still might have a 315/35/18 street(not track or drag) tire.
