    265s won't even fit on a 10.5 wheel. the smallest you can really go is 285 and those would have stretched sidewalls. 295s are your best bet. thats what i ran on my 10.5s when i had them

    I ran 265/45/16 auto-x tires on the flakes and they looked pretty good..

    A sightly wider wheel prolly would have looked lil better imho..

    Not sure if 10.5's the tire would mount right..

    I have 275/35/18 on the rear and 245/40/18 on the front the front wheels are 8" and the rear wheels are are 10" look great. There is just enough sticking out of the rear wheel well and there is no need for any spacers and no issues with rubbing.

    275 in the front. No rubbing issues? Did you need to put spacers in?

    You get what you pay for man. Hooking up cars isnt cheap at all. I dont see where 265s would be worth it anyways.. I guess for a DD it would be but if youre trying to go fast theyre gunna suck ass

    Those should look sweet I got kinda the same style with the chrome lip. Are you staggering the wheels. If your tight on cash check out Tire Rack for tires. BF Goodrich KDW2 I've been happy with mine and there not to bad for price.

    yea i just paid $1200 for some yokohomas. 275 in the front and 315 in the rear. i have learned that when it comes to tires its worth spending the extra cash.

    275s all around are the stock sizes for ws6 and SS
