    I have 18" OEM wheels on my '08 ST. I want to put slightly taller and wider tires on but am not sure what my limits are.

    I have had AT Revos on a previous vehicle and loved 'em. I had to buy them off stock size for this vehicle. I want to buy the Revos II's for my ST but the closest size I can find is a 255-70-18 vs the stock 235-65-18.

    Has anyone tried using a slightly larger tire on stock rims?

    Thanks in advance!

    Supposedly you can fit up to a 32" tire and the tire you want is 32.05" so it might be a touch too big.

    If you go to tire rack they can tell you about upsizing.

    Thanks for the feedback. Looks like I am going to go a little smaller tire - 265-65-18 and I should be good to go. GSU - those Grabbers look sweet! Perfect look for the wheels. Might have to look into those as well.

    I have 265/70/18 Grabbers on mine, I do have the truxxx lift though and still had to massage the rear inner fender plastic t ostop rubbing, there is also a slight amount of rub at full lock on lower A arm.
