    275 = 10.8 inches

    315 = 12.4 inches

    Me gusta google

    You better have some mini tubs in the back to fit a 12.5 inch rim. Or were you looking for rim sizes to fit those size tires? In that case it would be 9" up front, 11" in the rear.

    i don't really know how to answer that. I've seen 17x8., 17x9.5 and 18x9.5.

    so i wanna know what tire sizes i need to wrap around the 17x8 and 18x9.5 as i think that's the combo i want to go with.

    well, do what you want. just remember to keep the tire diameters the same or you'll have ABS and braking issues because of it.
