Whats the largest (tallest & widest) size tire that i can fit on a 18" rim on a s-10 xtreme? I know 255/45/18 fits, but what about 255/55/18? Any rubbing issues?

A 45 series tire is wider than a 55 series tire. The smaller the number the wider the tire.

Example: 40 is wider than a 45.
45 is wider than a 50.
50 is wider than a 55.

Ummm....I really don't think your info is correct man. A 40 series tire is SHORTER than a 45, and so on. A 265 is wider than a 255...the 40 in the tire size is a percentage of the tread width that determines the height of the tire.

SlammedWhitey03- i think you are a 100% correct. I think this guy has his shit all backwards. Anyway, does anybody know the biggest 18" tire that will fit on an x?

I would say that a 245/45 would be the biggest that I would go because a buddy of mine here in town has then on his Jimmy that's lowered 4-6 and he clear with no rubbing. I would say that the 2 of y'alls vehicles are pretty close to being the same height, so I wouldn't go much higher. Maybe a 255/45, nothing taller than that.

I would stay away from 255/45/r18 I had 255/40/r17 and my front tires rubbed, but at full turn only.
