Short of going thru all the archives, can someone give me info on the max tire size on stock 08 wheels? I was looking at the 285/40 on the Shelby 500. Too big?

Gerald, You got any idea what your offset is on the wheels you have?BiteTheBullitt0793 said:when i upgraded my rims to 9" in front i used a 255/45/18 tire. on the rears i have 10" rims and i used 285/40/18. both of these tire sizes are very, very close to factory specs in diameter for our bullitts (within less than .2" i believe) and should be fine.
When you use this link they say the 285's are for wider rims than the 8.5" we have as stock.
Based on that the 255/45-18's seem like the only good choice to upsize.
I'm sure somebody's done it but other than that I don't know, the 285's are within the less than 3% diameter change suggested but I am not sure about the wheel width vs the tire.
What do you think, Terry?
