How wide can the tires go on a base 94 3000GT? I have 245/40/zr18's on there now. could 255, 265, or 275 work without rubbing? thanks all!

You could, but they'd have to be 245/35s, 255/30s, and 265/25s, all terribly expensive.

And may I be the first to say (in this thread) that it is a hot setup.

just to let you know, 275's wont fit on 18x8.5's you need atleast a 9 inch wide rim to get them to fit..

I was wondering the same thing. 275-width 20-inch tires are sorta cheap and I was wondering about a 20-inch rear and 18-inch front setup.

20 inches? I think thats a little much. besides the larger the rim, the slower you accelerate.

I've got 275's on the rear and 255's on the front. No problems with rubbing at all. Actually I think I'm the only guy on here that even has an 11" wide wheel on the rear...didnt really plan that it just kinda happened :eek:

nathan- what is the total tire size for the front? ex: 255/40/18
