Keeping this in view, what is the widest tire for a 18x9 inch rim?

275/35/18 is the widest recomended tire. You can get them widened 1" and they will fit without spacers and be able to handle a 295 or 305.

Beside above, what tires will fit 18x8 5? 235/35/18 or 245/35/18 assuming the offset is reasonable. To stay at 25" diameter you need to go with 225/40/18"s. If you go up to 235 or 245 you need to drop to 35 profile or the tires are taller which changes the overall gearing of your car slowing the acceleration a bit.

What size tire fits a 17x8 rim?

215/45-17 gives you very good tire selection choices so that is a good place to start. 235 and 245mm wide tires will fit 17x8" wheels but add to the cost and weight as well as fewer tires to choose from. 205/45-17 isn't a good size for a 17x8" wheel, it's more of a stretch fit.

Are 18 inch wheels better than 17?

It comes down to more subjective measures, apparently. The smaller 17-inch tires represent the most comfortable ride thanks to the larger sidewall. The 18-inch tires create a bit more road noise, and this is further exacerbated when the car jumps up to the 19-inch wheels and tires.

Will a 285 tire fit a 9 inch rim?

The tire manufacturers state that a 285 needs to be on a 9.5. I'd be much happier seeing a 285 on a 9 rather than a 315. And NO, a 315 width Nitto IS NOT CORRECT on a 9 inch wheel.

What width tires fit on what width rims?

Because tires have flexible sidewalls, a single tire size will fit on a variety of rim widths. A tire mounted on a narrow rim would be "narrower" than if the same size tire was mounted on a wide rim.

Can I put bigger tires on my stock rims?


To keep the suspension and speedometer functioning correctly, both the stock diameter and width of the wheels and tires needs to be maintained. As a general rule of thumb, it's safe to fit a tire up to 20 millimeters wider than stock on the original rim.

Can I put 17 inch tires on 18 inch rims?

Can I fit 25mm tires on 23mm rims?

Tubular tires do not become wider on wide rims, unlike clinchers. So when a pro puts a 25mm tubular on a wide rim, it is like putting a 23mm tire on a wide clincher. Since you aren't racing, aero probably won't matter too much to you unless you ride in winds that are super high.

Will a 305 tire fit a 9.5 rim?


No, a 305 tire was not meant for a 9.5" wheel. Period. If people want put a 305, 315, 325, 335 tire on their cars then they need to buy the correct width rim and roll on their day.

Will a 315 tire fit on 10 Rim?

Keep in mind drag radials have softer sidewalls so they could stand up to the extra bulge but probably not the 10" wide rim. 315 tires need an 11" wide rim but I've seen some mustangs with 315's on a 10 1/2" rim and they bulge alot. I would recommend a 295 series tire to be safe and to produce the most even tire wear.

Can you put 225 tires on 215 rims?

Can I put 205 tires on 215 rims?

Most likely yes, the 205/75-15 tires can fit rim widths that are from 5 inches to 6-1/2 inches, as long as the rim you have has a width in that range you should be fine. 215/75-15 isn't a standard trailer tire size.

How do I know if a tire will fit my rim?


Subtract the diameter of your rims from the overall diameter of the tires currently on the rims (from tread-mark to tread-mark) and divide the result by 2. The result is your tire's sidewall height.

Can I put 245 tires on 225 rims?

This will work perfectly fine, because as I said in the previous post 245/70-16 is the exact same diameter as 225/75-16. The ONLY difference is that the 245 is 0.8" wider (not much wider at all). The two tire sizes are interchangable.

Can you put 255 tires on 245 rims?

No difference. Keep in mind 255 and 245 are sidewall width and having nothing to do with tread width. Depending on manufacturer a 245 could have more tread width than a 255. Tread compound has as much as anything to do with handling.
