like a 265-40-18 tire, which is 1.18" wider. same diameter.
Keep this in mind. When we deal with low profile tires, one can't just use the same rules that apply to other tires.Wow, you're going to put a 265 on an 8" wide wheel??? Is that even possible/safe?? Lol.
Yea but if you go too wide the tire won't even fit on the wheel. It'll just engulf the whole wheel width I'd imagine. The bead has to sit somewhere, it won't be able to properly if the tire is too wide.Keep this in mind. When we deal with low profile tires, one can't just use the same rules that apply to other tires.
The best way to describe it is like this.
The profile of the tires is round - on a normal tires. We can go wider or less, and it would still be round.
The profile of the tires on a low profile is rather square. And when one goes wider, it create a slant angle (angle out). There is less profile to flex, and the tires can pop out of the wheel.
I'm too lazy to draw out what I meant, so I hope the text above is clear enough.
What was horrible was the OE 18 inch wheels, I just could not like them. But hey we are all entitled to an opinion. Found another set of wheels I may go for, might just keep these for snow wheels.Rims look horrible in my opinion, but if you like them then that's all that matters.
