Welcome to the Forum.I haven't located a thread on this yet but what would be the largest tire size on the stock 18 inch rim I could install without the fear of rubbing
Well I went ahead and ordered a tire one inch larger in diameter which according to the chart is less than 3%and hopefully there's no issues will let you know how they do...I have found some good info in these threads about the 3% rule on tire diameter, but does any one know what the 18" Steel rims and PIU can handle for a width? I am looking at expanding my tire options for the 245/55/R18 steel rims and could use some opinions on best alternative sizes.
Welcome to the Forum.Similar subject: My PIU came with a spare wheel but no wheel. I know for convenience I should get the same size, Do I need to get the PIU standard or can I just get a cheaper tire, since it will probably be sitting in the car and never used?
Is this 3% all around? Like 3% width, side wall and over all tire diameter?Welcome to the Forum.
Have you checked out this thread? Can I run a 255/65R18 on my XLT?
As mentioned in that thread, you should not exceed 3% of the OEM tire size. You can use the following site to check that. 245/60-R18 vs 255/60-R18 Tire Comparison - Tire Size Calculator | Tacoma World Just plug in your own numbers and check the diameter difference.
