    :)
    i gunna throw this question in...in a 285/70/17 tire the second number is the height right so why does it look much bigger than a 275/70/17 and only the width change?:confused:

    Width/Height/wheel diameter

    height is a percentage of width

    Tire calculation (using 285/70/17):

    Width (usually in millimeters) = 285mm
    Height (percentage of width) = 70
    Diameter (diameter of rim) = 17

    Convert metric units to standard units:
    285/25.4 = 11.22 inches

    Calculate height of tire sidewall:
    11.22 inches x 0.70 (this is 70%) = 7.854 inches

    Add all the heights:

    7.854 x 2 (since there is an upper and lower part of the sidewall) + 17 (wheel dia)
    = 32.708 inches

    Using the above method the 275/70/17 is over a half inch smaller in overall diameter.

    Tire calculation (using 305/60/18):

    Width (usually in millimeters) = 305mm
    Height (percentage of width) = 60
    Diameter (diameter of rim) = 18

    Convert metric units to standard units:
    305/25.4 = 12.01 inches

    Calculate height of tire sidewall:
    12.01 inches x 0.60 (this is 60%) = 7.206 inches

    Add all the heights:

    7.206 x 2 (since there is an upper and lower part of the sidewall) + 18 (wheel dia)
    = 32.412 inches

    My tires rub though, I should mention that. I already trimmed the body mount, but they still rub a teeny little bit on full steer. oh, and I got a 3 1/2" lift on the front.

    Probably because of the width of the tire but what is your offset and back spacing?

    I really like your wheels. This is the size wheels and tires that I want to get. Do you have any rubbing and did you have to trim anything? Also what size lift do you have?
