    I've had several people tell me that I can go all the way up to a 315 on
    9 1/2" rim but mine is a 9" rim but I dont want it to bulge. I was hoping for at least a 305 to fit decent.

    315's require an 11 inch wide wheel. Otherwise you are pushing it.

    OK im going to start this again......im sorry I got ahold of my friend that I bought the rims from and he informed me that the rims are 9 1/2" NOT 9" like I thought.......Now what is the largest size tire that will fit a 9 1/2" Rim.......295,305,315? I've heard from some of yaw that you can put a 315 on stock 17" SS & WS6 Rims. All the Pictures that I have seen with 315's were on 11" GS ZR1 Wheels. Also does anyone have any pics of any of these sizes on a 9 1/2" rim I really want to see what they look like before I buy. Also If 305's or 315's will fit will I have a problem with the tire hiting the fender well, Because im fixing to buy Eibach Sportline Springs which will lower the front 1.6" and the rear 1.4". SORRY to have to ask all this again just want to be sure I get the right stuff. Thanks and any Pic will be helpful.

    I wouldn't put anything other than a 275 (MAYBE a 285) on a 9.5" wheel.


    I run 9.5" wheels up front....and the 275's fit perfectly on them.

    Nitto's are thin.
    Most other manufacturers I wouldn't push it with.


    Believe me, I understand wanting more tire...but you have to do it safely.

    If you want bigger, just get bigger wheels. You an get C6 18x10.5 for fairly cheap.
