What is the biggest tire I can put on my stock 18s without any modifications to the car? I'm looking at 255/55/18s. I want to have some more rubber fill up the wheelwell. Will these fit? I'm thinking of getting the tires from Sam's Club.

I'm also thinking of going with Michelin. I want good traction but not a treadwear rating of 200 :rolleyes2: Any Michelin fans out there?

Thanks for all the input! :driving:

The round one's work best......




I've seen 255/55/18 doubt you can go much bigger on stock rims.

Ones that are rubber, and round that are made for a 18" wheel.....IMHO.

General makes a UHP in 255/55/18, nice tire, IMO you can't go wrong with a Michelin either. I've got them on my Saab and they stick like glue wet or dry.

Get some big fat ones

And then get out the torch and hammer to make 'em fit! :banana:

With all the power you keep talking about you'll need the trakshion. You got that new cam ordered yet?

If you're going to make fun you should make sure your spelling is right :slap: :biggrinjester:

go with the 255/55/18. It's the best size for the 18's imo. All the michelins in that size will run pretty high dollar though. When I was pricing around on mine, I ended up going with the Goodyear Eagle Responsedge. I love them.

I'd also advise not going with Sam's Club or Wal-Mart as they're getting out of the tire business supposedly in 2010.

Point taken! :)

LongDriving...

I have been running 255/55ZR18s for the past 2 driving seasons...and I love them. I had crappy Michelins as my stock tires and I DID NOT like them. MY GY Eagle F1 GS-D3s have been good to me...really improved traction in wet and dry conditions. :bigthumb:
