What is the widest we can run on the front and rears of our car without having ANY issues or modifications? Im am considering getting same sizes in front and back to make tire rotation/tire life better.

May try to get another set of our stockers in 19" for front, but seems pretty wide.

9 inch in the front is already pretty wide. You "MIGHT" be able to squeeze a 9.5" front, but I dont know if the factory rears offset will work...

Good luck.

295's in the rear!! However that is on an aftermarket wheel. If you are asking how wide of a tire you can run on a factory rim, that would be a 285 tire. This would be the minimum allowable width to secure the tire on the rim.


No rubbing, no modifications, etc...

Thank you,

How about the rear tires?

Im not doing a good job of typing what im thinking. I am asking what is the widest width of wheel in the rear you can run, and with that the widest tire.

10.5 inch wide wheel in the rear on a 295 tire. Anything more than that you will have to trim or you might run interference with the fenders...

Thank you,

If the max width you can run is 295, whats the point of getting a 10.5 wheel or a wheel any wider than stock?

Which tire brand and full spec (295-??) are you using on the rear? Since you said no problems, you must be OK even with the lower springs.

OOps! I'm running 285's and lowered

R = 285-35-19 OD is .97 smaller


$220 front and $290 rear
How do you like the way those tires fit on your ride? I am looking at getting some Nitto Invos and they come in those sizes

I like them. They throw the speedo off 3 MPH. So you think you are going 50 when you are really going 47. much cheaper as well to go that size as well. I really wanted the Nitto but they didn't have them in stock when I really needed tires. Next time I am going to try them. So far I love the T-R's

Cool, I will have to check out the Toyos too. How long do those last about? In spirited driving of course :D

I heard good things with the Nittos Invos, I will let you know how they actually are when I put them on.

Sorry for the delayed response. The fronts are fine at 9" wide. No difference for the non-V other than the offsets due to the brakes.

Thank you,

Is there any difference between V and non-V?
What about front?
