I'm looking to replace my tires in the near future and I was wondering whats the widest tire I could fit on a 9.5" wide rim. Right now I'm running a 245/45R17. And I just want to see if I could go wider.
Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions!

:yes

You can go wider and up to a 285, I believe. The tire you run will have an approved wheel width rating in the specs page. Personally, I would not run over a 275, as this is pretty good fit for a 9.5" wheel.

BREDMAN: whats the actual size of your tire? like a 275/45? or 275/35?

I have 295's (30) on a 9 inch rim in the back and 275's (35) on a 9 inch rim in the front.....so it is possible.

Thats all my used tire guy had, I would go lower if I could choose, just saying it can be done that wide.

probably, but surprisingly they have still have a lot of thread left and it's been a while.

like I said, they were the only ones he had, and I'm not going to turn down 295 pirel tires for 30 bucks each.

Oh wow, but doesn't the tire have a little extra hanging over the edge of the rim?

They look good. A little bulge on the side wall, but not bad. :)
