what rear tires if keeping stock front tires?


Rite now I have the AMR 18x8 wheels with the stock pirellis 235/50/18. I want to go wider in the rear and was thinking 275 if I buy 2 18x10 wheels.
1. Can I do 18x8 and 18x10?
2. What size tire in the back if I am keeping the 235/50 up front?

1. Yes, you can run different size rims on the front and back. It just means that you can't rotate the tires diagonally anymore.

2. I'd do 285s personally on the back but you could go 295s or even 305s on 10" wide rims.

Ya I knew you could stagger but I didnt know if it was ok to go 2 sizes up lol. So what would look the best with a 235/50 up front though?

Like Rainblow said- go with a 285 or 295.

I've got the stock size 255/40-19 Nitto Invos up front and a 285/35-19 out back. The main reason I went with the Invos is you can rotate side to side to promote even tire wear. Have no complaints with them, either.
