I need help asap as i think i may have ordered the wrong tire.
I just ordered 275/40/17 for the rear. I didn't go after 275/50/17 bc after reading on here i didn't think they made them. Should i cancel my order and get the 275/50's? I'm just worried the the car with look dumb with the ones i bought since it will still have the 255/50's up front.
Dats a good deal where did you order them from?Man i'm glad i looked into this more after my order. I cancelled that order and placed an order for some 285/40's for the rear and some 255/45's for the front. I only needed back tires but what the hell. for $476 for all 4 of those i'll take em.
Not to thread jack but this seems like a good thread to use as the start for a sticky rebuild.
What is the widest rear tire you can run on a 17" wheel with open wheelwells?
Same question but with skirted wheelwells?
How bout those same 2 questions but on a 15" wheel?
I know the rear axle and wheel backspacing come into play, but for simplicity lets assume everything is centered perfectly on the car and you just want to jam a monster wheel in the back for a day at the track.
People should be able to use the info westSSdad posted to figure out the appropriate heights to keep the speedo right and the front to rear balanced.
