The R II's only come in 275/40-17, and I'm wondering if I can get away with using them on my 17X8 wheels, given that Nitto's tend to run a little narrow. Anyone running this way?
The side wall height makes a big difference. The bigger rim/shorter sidewall combinations have a lot less distance to make up the difference in width, so they are less tolerant of mismatched sizes. You can get away with a little more on a 17" than an 18" rim.GriggsP51 said:I have 265/35/18 on 9" rims and they fit perfect. I think 275 on an 8" rim would not work well at all.
