My question is they dont make a 265 40 17 for the front but they make a 255 40 17 how much smaller would that look,would the rim lip stick out past the tire?
I used a website tire calculator, to determine what tire would work best, with close to stock parameters.
On front, I have 275/40-17 Nitto 555r Extremes(sidewall=4.3"), on a 17x9.5 wheel...on back I have the 305/35-18 Nitto 555r drag radials(sidewall=4.2"), on an 18x10.5 wheel.
This combo looks great, hooks great, and barely affects the speedometer readings(rear tire dia.) at all.
If I were to go with an 18 up front, I would select the 275/35-18, which has a 3.8" sidewall. Hope this helps you!
