I want to run 16x8 in the front and 17x8 in the rear.
What tire size can fit on the front with out rubbing. Wht size on the rear.
I want the sidewalls to match i.e. if the front sidewall is 1 inch then I want the rear to be to. I know the rear will have an overall larger diameter but thats what I want.
Thanks

I'm looking for road handling tires

well u should be able to go with 225 or 235 in the front with a sidewall of 50 or 55 and in the back i am running right now 245 on my stock x wheel with a sidewall of 50. don't go bigger than 235 in the front though i did and it cut my radius and it rubs at full lock. if u can actually find the same tires i got they are great they are grand spirit aqua flow gtx i love them. i wish they made them in 18's so i can put them on my timeless 5's when i get them but they don't. i haven't made the tires squeal once thru a turn yet and trust me i push them.

well heres the thing if you lower with spindles that pushes tires out 1/4 of a inch so if your not gonna rotate then go wth a 16x8 4.5 bs 245 50 16 and rear 17x8 4.25 bs and 255 50 17. thing is usually people get 4.5 bs all around with 17x8 but if you look at the side you will see front sticks out more because of spinldes. for the customers trucks i did that were not going to rotate and wanted 17s all around i had them get 4.5 bs front on a 17x8 and rear 4.25 bs

if your not goiong to lower it its gonna have so much gap gonna look real funny. if your keeping it stock height then get 18x8 4.5 bs and 245 45 18. what i would do is get 3 inch drop springs ive done this on a few of them and 2 inch blocks in back with 245 45 18 all around will look good
