Please Help with Tire Sizes for 18x9, and 18x10

What do you guys recommend for 18x9, and 18x10 wheels, from what I've read the size should be 255/45/18 and 285/40/18. Will these two sizes work together?

Thank You for the Help

I just got a quote yesterday. I want the same size wheels and the tire sizes you mentioned are the same size quoted to go with the wheels I want. So hope this helps.


Can life get any better????

I believe that is the same width tire which will be on the Shelby GT500. So, yes it should work fine. I have 245/45/18 in the front and and 275/40/18 in the rear with 9 an 10 wide rims. That combination works fine also and the diameter is almost the same as stock. I also like that the edge of the tire is almost flush with the edge of the fender (although I did feel a need to put on splash guards because of that).

That what I have ..255/45 front. 185/40 back. I think any wider in the back woul stick out of the fender well. Some BF Goodrich G-force KDW-2s finished the story
