Default Will a 275 tire fit on a 10" wide wheel???

I ordered a set of race star industries wheels, 15x10's in the back and picked up a set of 275/60/15's on a sweet deal. I was under the impression that having 275's on a 10" wheel would have a good contact patch but on Mickey Thomson's site they said that tire size is for a 7.5-9.5" wide wheel.

Plenty of people have used that size tire on a 15x10 rim. I'm planning on using a M/T 275/60 on my wheels once I get them.

It will work fine man. Lots of people run that tire size on a 10" rim.

Ok sweet I was a little worried for a minute lol. Now will this wheel and tire combo that I have fit on the car or will I have to do some stuff to make them fit? I cant test fit them on the car as I have no rear end, driveshaft, tq arm, lca's or gas tank in the car right now.

yep true story, this wheel size and tire size is one of the most popular combos out there. i have the 15x10 bs street lites with the m/t 275/60 15 and love the fit.

So what about a 17x11 with a 275-40-17? Will the sidewalls "suck in" too much or will it look like it belongs on the rim?

Only wondering because I'm not sure if you need the wider rim on the rear for a deeper dish or if you can just order the rear with a lower offset?

a 275 is wayyyy to small for a 11 inch wide wheel.

I dont understand your second question. You should run a 305 or 315 on a 11 inch wheel. You want a 9-10 inch wheel for a 275.
