I'm gonna be test fitting the wheels today, so I'll be sure to get pics, but all week I've been telling the guys at work about how wide these things are! And just to give you an idea of how wide these are!
Well it looks like I'll need a 1/2" spacer for the front for now. And I SHOULD be able to fit a 315. It's gonna damn tight but it seems possible on the stock struts. They may poke just a little in the front but not crazy.
And just another size comparison.
Old wheel and tire 275/35/19 on a 9.5" wheel.
Are those the +47 or +38s? The +38s fit fine in the rear with 315s and without a spacer but stick out a bit. I think the +47s will fit just fine in the rear without a spacer. I'm guessing a +47 would need at least a 1/2" in the front. I'm going to test fit my 18 x 10.5 +38s with a 315 up front using a 1/4" spacer once it warms back above zero.
That's still up in the air, I'm kinda leaning towards just installing the studs myself to save some money.
And right now I'm at 1.6 degrees with my nittos but I think to tuck the new tires a little more I'm gonna go to 2.0 and just rotate them way more frequently. And it should just barely tuck from what it looks like.
