    Tire Size for Team Dynamics Wheels (18x9)

    What is the best tire size to run on the Team Dynamics wheels for those who have them? It is a 18x9 wheel, where the stock wheel is 18x8.5. Should I still run the stock 245/45 size, or go up to a 265/40 or 275/40 tire? The car will be primarily used for daily driving, with about 2 autocross events a month.

    I went with 255/40 up front and 275/40 out back.

    Was this for fittment reasons? Just wondering why if not. With the same size rims front and back I would want the same size tires so I could rotate them. With that said I have 265's front and rear on stock rims just for that reason.

    it really should depend on your usage. DD go for the same size all around to get the most even tread wear.. but if its a weekend only car.. the extra tire out back adds a noticeable bite and doesn't negatively effect the handling.. my car is a DD and i have a staggered set up with 245 in FR and 275 RE.i didn't use my own logic but i did it for the looks..

    I would say do 255-265s all-around but i have read that depending on your tire choice you Will have rubbing up front on the inner wheel well at full lock with 265s

    well the car does get thrashed pretty good on the weekends at the autocross courses, so i figure i may just stick with a stock-sized tire, or even go down to a 40 series tire to help with my rubbing issues of the 245/45's on there now.

    Re: Tire Size for Team Dynamics Wheels (18x9)

    I have thought about getting these team dynamic rims as well. I will be curious to see what they look like if you take pictures since there is no center caps. The main benefit I see of picking up these wheels other than being lighter weight than stock would be the ability to run 275/40's all around without having to stretch them on the stock wheels and without having to pay for 19inch tire premiums the wheeldude rims would require. I did this with my last car, ford mustang, and ran 275's all around on 9 inch wide rims and have read other members who have done it on the gen 1 cts-v. The front may rub and may require a small spacer lowered or even not lowered; but the ability to run 275's all around would seem to be worth it on these rims. Let us know what you go with staggered or not and please post pics if you can.

    Jeffthenail is a member who has recently posted about running 275's all around stating very minor rubbing.

    I just installed team dynamics wheels and to my surprise they came with hub caps which actually just clear the rear universal axle. Has anybody else had this same success?

    No center caps on mine. Got any pics? I only run mine on track, so the center caps would never be installed, anyway, but I'm curious to see what they look like and how they fit.

    As for the original question from last year, I'm running 275/35-18s R-compounds all around. I rolled the front fender lips - not sure if I really needed to, but I think it would've been damn close if I hadn't.

    I Have team dynamics wheels on a Redline. Love mine. I also have center caps(came with wheels). I have an extra set of unused caps I bought. If anyone is interested let me know. BTW I run 255s all the way around.

    Any definite answer for a stock height/stock suspension (FG2), NON Staggered setup ? Not looking to roll fenders or have rubbing issues
