    Stock Tire Sizes

    What's the biggest size tire that will fit on the stock rims? I know it's 245/45-18, but looking for a thicker look. Wider tire.

    Or are most people getting aftermarket rims with a bigger tire?

    What's the biggest that will fit without wheel rub?

    Please search. This has been asked eleventybillion times.

    IMO, stick with stock size all around, maybe 275/40/18 in the rear.

    Please don't make your V part of this stupid stance nation crap.

    Just put nitto nt555 245/45/18's on the front and 275/40/18 rear. Gives you some poke, nice stance, mean look, and most of all some GRIP.

    Re: Stock Tire Sizes

    Yeah, sorry for the added thread on this. I actually found a few things... lol, stance nation...

    So stock front 245/45/18

    and surprising 275/40/18 will fit on the stock rear stock rim?

    I may have my rims blasted and chromed, the paint is a little cracky in some areas but no curb rash.

    I'm going with the Mich pilot super sport

    275/40R18 is ideal yes... but Michelin Pilot Super Sports don't come in that size. You'll have to step down to 275/35R18.. which is kind of shy on the sidewall and makes the rear look weird. I'm running 245 Super sports all around right now and love them. I would like to go bigger in the rear but the tire sizes for this cars over all tire diameter are pretty limited if you want to keep close to stock size.

    Check here for all sizes available in those tires.

    Re: Stock Tire Sizes

    There's a few Mich Pilot sports that do a 275/40/18

    most tread wears suck though and rated 220... So I'd most likely go with the pilot sport a/s plus for the rear which is rated 500

    But to keep the same tire I'm probably sticking with stock tire size. (i don't plan on being a street racer) So if it's track time, I'm getting some nice slick track tires

    Now I see why you posted in Appearance forum instead of Performance.

    Re: Stock Tire Sizes

    I went with Eagle GT 245/45Z/R18 (W/400/AA/A) for the look of the sidewall, and the curb protection. I won't go without curb protection in the sidewall, unless it's a track set of wheels, but I won't track this car. If I did, I would probably get the Super Sports.

    other sets I would consider are these Eagle GT's in 255 and some Dunlops which have the sidewall look that I like, though I haven't had a set of those Dunlops since 2003 (SP 8000 in 315/35/17).

    I had BFGoodrich Radial T/A tires with raised white lettering on my '87 Chevy truck in the early '90s in high school. Amazing what a toothbrush and some bleach did to keep them clean.
