So long story short I bought the toyo proxy but it does not fill up the wheel well it's under 27 inches. But it's nice and wide. The nitto is 28 inches high which filled it up nice just keep hearing people say nitto s run skinny? Should have listened to you boss

I try to make it easy for you guys. Sidewall is important to filling the gap and will help you in the traction dept. I could have gone 315/40 but went 305/45 because it was a taller tire. Live and learn. Did you get the triple 8's?

That's their DR, right? Let me know how that works for you. I've rocked Toyo's but weren't sure about their DR's as they are fairly new to their line up.

Like I said I might send it back the width is sweet but it's kinda short. The mh might be perfect?

I think I reallylike the mh 325 40 18 it's the only one out there. Props to the tire rack for taking returns though. I've put a lot into this I just want it to be perfect.

I am going for my second set of nitto invo's. 255/35/20 fronts and 295/35/20 rears. I drive a lot but they are still nice and have beautiful tread pattern. They don't hurt the bank much either.

I love the look of taller sidewalls.


That's why I have stock wheels & tires
