Tires and Rims???

First I bought a set of Toyo OC 275/70R18 to put on my stock wheels but I didn't mount them. Then I figured I'd put on a 2 1/2" Lift on and get a set of MT Classic II 18 x 9 rims to make it all complete.

My question is will thoughs tires fit on a 9" rim ok or do I have to have a 8" rim?

The new rims look so wide compaired to the stock one.

Thanks for the help.

The Toyo website says approved size 7.5-8.5 with 8.0 being ideal.

Thanks for the reply.


Anyone know what would happen if I put the tires on the rims?

With a wider than recommended wheel, you will have a less than idea tread pattern and be more likely to lose a bead offroading.

You would also need to run the tires at a higher psi, giving a stiffer ride.

I don't know if 0.5" will make that big of a deal.

I don't know if a tire shop will mount a tire on a wheel that is 0.5" wider than spec--which is quite different than mounting it on a wheel that is 0.5" narrower than spec.

I wouldn't do it.

Thanks again. Guess I have to take the rims back and get the spacers.

If you like the wheels, then take the tires back, if they have not been mounted, you should be fine.
