    another 315 question.....

    I have searched and searched but to no avail...soo here it goes

    I've seen the thread where a nitto 555R 315 can be run a 9.5 inch wheel without too much problem, but what about a stock 9 inch wheel?

    reason being, I know the nitto 275 will look smaller compared to my front tire

    you are asking for problems...9 is just not recommended. the 9.5 you can get away with...but still remember a 9 is designed for a 255 .......you are talking about putting a 315..where it is at least a true 305. that is a huge difference...too big personally. I have my 55R DR 315s in the shop right now waiting for my rims to come in...and trust me..they are way to big for 9"s

    i figured the 9 inch would be pushing it...are there any other choices out there for a street radial? i don't want to get the nitto in a 275 and have it look weird compared to the front

    I have em on 9.5"...9 is probably pushing it too far.

    You can get M/Ts, theres a lot of choices out there, just look around.

    You CAN put a 315 Nitto on a 9.5" wheel. I've done it several times with no problems. The 315 Nitto runs a little more narrow than most 315's, and will squeeze on there. I ran a set of Nittos for 20,000 miles like that with no problems before they wore out.
