    Anyone running 18 inch Motometal on stock suspension?I,m looking at 18x9 with 18 offset.Checking forums.Looks like biggest tire I can run is 265-65-18 on stock suspension.Wondering if this wheel and tire compatible.I have stock 2010 prerunner with 245-75-16.I checked site calledwww. big wheel.net,and it state this is only 18 motometals that compatible. Under tire recommends it state 275-60-18,265-60-18 and 275-55-18.Does not mention 265-65-18 but it may be cause they dont stock that size.Appreciate any input.thanx

    I'm running moto metal 17x9's, the issue I had with tire fitment is finding a tire to fit a 9" wheel....some brands of the same sizes are not suggested for a 9" wheel. I'm running Nitto TG's.
    So check the specs for whatever brand of tire you want and see if they work for a 9" wheel and also which size is 32" or smaller. Over 32" will definately rub. I had to trim a little to fit 265/70/17 on stock suspension.

    Don't know if this helps...


    IMO 18's are going to look huge.

    I'm running 18x9's on stock suspension with 265/65/18's, no issues. My offset is +10mm though. +18 will push it pretty close to the UCA. On the tire manufacturers website it will say what size rim it is safe to run their particular tire on, for a given tire size.

    My rims aren't moto metals, but this can help you visualize the size.
