I've been reading that the 555R DR runs a little smaller than its rated at...

So say the 315 fits an 11" wheel normally, but is a little stretched...would the tire actually give better traction on a 10 to 10.5" wheel? Theoretically the more you stretch a tire the less grab it should have in a straight line.

And I also read that the regular 555 is a little wide so a 285 would fit perfect on a 9.5" wheel?

This is just going off of what i've read on this forum. If any of it is true, i'd like to hear it.

Thanks for any help.

I am running them on my 11's and I don't think they are stretched. They fit perfect as far as I can tell. They just aren't huge like BFG's .
