    What size wheel should i use for this tire...

    Im about to purchase a set of four TT2 wheels. Ive already got the tires for the fron that im going to use and ive now made up my mind on the back tires im gonna use that im about to purchase. The tires for the back will be MT et street radials 275/40/17 (26'' x 11.5'' - 17''). I read that the aproved rim width was from 9" to 11" so should I get 17 x 9.5 like the front or 17 x 11" and also for each choice whatever you guys think I should get, what would be the proper back space/offset ?

    You Should Never Run A 275 On A 11 Inch Rim. Its Approved But Not Safe. 285 Is The Widest To Run On A 9.5 Inch Rim. 315 Is The Best Size To Run On An 11 Inch Wheel!!!!!!!!!

    I have no problem with them fitting on my formula, it's even lowered 1.5 inches. The 1 thing you should do is get an adjustible panhard bar. Here's a link to a store that sells them. I don't think there a sponsor so change this link if you feel fit . http://store.summitracing.com/egnsea...115+4294904590
