Will this fit on the rear??? I have already rolled the fenders. How about a 265/40/18??? Let me know!!! Thanks in advance!!!
How wide is the rear rim? I take it your tires can't handle the power from the SRT stage 4. :wink:

275/35/18 will give you a 25.6" wheel diameter, it's recommended that 275 are mounted on rims that are 9" or wider. 265/40/18 are too big, if you want to put 265s on then go with 265/35/18s.

should u have a 35 on an 18" rim? i thought it was 40
The aspect and treadwidth play hand and hand with one another. If you were running 225s then you should use 40 series tires. This will give you a wheel diameter of 25.09". If you were putting on 255s then you should go with 35 series because it will give you a wheel diameter of 25.03". If you were to go with 255/40/18 then you'll have a 26" wheel diameter.

It is an 18x9. And yes, the tires I have spin through first and second gear, so I am trying to fit a BFG drag radial under there. and these are the two sizes that tire rack said might fit. Thanks again!!!
