    Could someone please post pics of 275/40 on 18X9.5 FRPP 2000 Cobra R wheels, or 285/35 on the same wheel. Trying to make up my mind. :shrug:
    I definitively wanna have all four tires the same but cant decide.
    It's gonna be between 275/40/18 BFG KDW or 285/35/18 Nitto 555 extreme.
    Thanks

    here are my 275/35/18 Goodyear Eagle F1 DS-G3 on 18x9.5 ADR M-sport rims all 4 corners. I would think anything wider than 285 up front is too big. I even think my 275s are pushing it sometimes, they have a tendancy to want to follow the contures on the road.

    Here are pictures of 285/35R18 Nitto NT 555s on the rear of a lowered GT. The fronts are 265/35R18 though. I'm not sure if I would go with as big as a 285/35 on the front though.

    The brand you buy matters a lot. I believe BFGs run a lot wider than Nittos.
