What is the largest tire fitment that will fit with an 18x8.5 front and 18x10 rear. The wheelk offset are 13 front 25 in back. They are on a 540...will they fit our cars?


TIA

Ritter,

I think the that 8.5" width is okay but 10" will be pretty hard to fit depending on how low your car is. I don't think it will fit, and certainly won't be able to tuck it nicely.

As far as tires go, I'm using 215/35/18 to be on the safe side. I've heard of people using 235/35/18 but they said there was some fender modification necessary.
