found a nice set of used foose wheels, 265/40/20 in the front, 275/40/20 in the back. couldnt find anything when i searched about it, will these tires be too tall or wide?

oh no not lift like that, i think it may raise the car some since the tires are taller but i do plan on lowering it soon anyway

I see no reason to elevate your ride, as those tires run just fine on the S197 when lowered 1.5".

4Talked to a local tire guy, he said that 275/40/20 is almost 2 inches too tall and prob wouldnt be a good idea to run them, i dont want to miss out on this deal, anyone else think this would be ok???

I have 255/40R20 Front and 275/40R20 Rear on Foose Nitrous. I think the rear are like an 1.5 inches taller if i remember correctly? If it is 275/40R20 and not 275/50R20.

EDIT: Pics in garage for viewing.

ok guys well i bought the wheels!! paid 550 installed for them. the front tires are 245/35/20 and the back is 275/40/20, i have the same size tire on my lightning so ill just take these off and save them as spares since they have like 3k miles on them.


but my question now, what size tire should i go for? i think they are 10" wheels so would the 245 work? i am thinking 255 or 265.

You don't want to go 245's on a 10" wheel, as minimum is going to be nearer to 265's, IMO (even then, it will look a bit thin). 285's are a good width, but can run up to a 305 if you want to max out a good fit.

I have 275's all around. The max you wanna go with the 10" wheel is 305's. I plan on getting some soon and YES they fit.
