    Put a 315 on my car to check fit. I would have to pound in inner fender(didn't seem like it would have to move much), roll outer fender, and move exhaust pipe over bout .5 inch. Looked just to big and not necessary. Imo...

    275 40 are plenty, and fit nicely on a 9" rim. With the correct offset, they will slap right on

    They make new pistons every day, so why worry?

    I think 275's or 295's are a sweet looking tire when checking out the A$$ end of a 5.0.

    I would have loved to go larger than my 275's, but I really wanted that IRS. They still look plenty wide. I'm happy with them.

    315s on mine. Having those fat steamrollers out back looks a lot nicer than an 9" wide tire.
