    A 275/295 will fit on the rim but as far as it fitting in your fenderwell the middle number would be helpful in determing that as well as the suspension mods if any and the tire you want to run.

    sorry about that. I was thinking 295/35/18 for the rear and something like 275/40/18 for the front. I was looking into bfg tires. I have upgraded the lca's and panhard bar so far

    295/35/18 and 275/35/18 are what I run. Took minimal work to get the rears to fit, fronts were fine.

    I test drove an '01 NBM WS6 that had those same exact tires on the rear w/ alloy ZO6s. The fronts were 17" w/ 275/40/17 BFG KDWS. Guy said he didn't have to do a damn thing to get it to fit, but when you're selling a car... well, we all know how truthful people can be

    Thanks for all of the info. Summit tells me that they would only go as wide as 285 so I'm still a little wary on which way to go. But I dont think the difference will be big enough to worry about. I know hooking up is not all about the tire. Thanks again

    There was one spot on each side that I had to make minor clearances for. 9 o'clock on the driver side, 3 o'clock on the passenger side. Didn't take long at all and was very minimal.
