    What size tires for 18x10.5???

    I finally got my 18x10.5's to fit in the rear but now I really see that my 275/35/18 tires arent wide enough for the rims and arent as tall as my 245/40/18s for the front. So.....what width should I have for 18x10.5's I was thinking either 285 or 295 width and a 45 height but I dont really know. Which size would look best and fit them right?

    It isnt lowered....not yet at least now it looks like it definatley needs it, but im kind of worried about lowering it because I have gfx and im not sure how bad I will scrape. How low of a drop do you have, and do you have gfx?

    don't go wider than 295 if you want the tire to be mounted properly on the wheel.
    295/35-18 is great.
    if you want wider, you better get wider wheels.
