im going to buy some wheels and tires off a guy that says he took them off his 98 s-10. The wheels are helo beasts with the same backspacing as a stock wheel (so he says). he says the tires on the rims are 305/40/18. is this even possible? wont the tires rub tremendously or stick out from the fenders. does anyone have any pictures of 305/40/18's on an s10. also the rims are 8.5" wide.

LOL you'd be able to turn the steering wheel about a 1/2 turn before the fronts would rub. As for hte back it all depends on ur drop.

i picked up a set of 17x8.5 wheels with 315/35-17's on them. this was on an '84 4x4. you could tell they were too wide for the wheels but i used them till i got rid of the truck. just got another 4x4 blazer and will use the wheels again, but i'm switching to 255/50-17's before i put them on.

you said "no way its on there"..thats different then it wont fit correctly when the f**k did i say you as a person was stupid...get off it bro..
i said i have 295/50/15's on a 15X8, thats a half inch less wheel, and half inch less tire..so it comes out the same as your 12 inch tire on a 8.5......sooooo, i guess i already did
I didnt say the damn setup would work out on the front of a s10
