Which tire size looks best on 18" fan blade wheels?

I wanted to get the staggered chrome deep dish Bullitts wheel and tire package from Late Model Resteration but just spent more money on coesmetic parts so they will have to wait!

I'm assuming you have the 50's on there now you could go with a 45 possibly a 40 series tire. Car looks good lowered like that Iv'e been considering that myself but I'm back and forth on going with 20's so I'm waiting.

Yes, I currently have the original 235/50/18 and I have the car lowered with Eibach lowering springs.

So I could go to a 40 series, what about wider?

IMO, I would wait a bit for the DD bullitts then and do it right.... Fronts 255/45/18 on 9" rims and Rears 285/40/18 on 10" rims. All on Nitto 555's. Looks really good !!

255 tire is the widest tire recommended for your stock wheel.

No reputable tire shop will mount a 275 on the stock rim.
