    YES i have them on my rear wheels now. They are copletely fine. Although i would go with something much beefier if i were you. I was given the wheels and tires on them, so i couldn't complain. But i would go with like 295s or 315s if i were you. But 275/40/17 is what im running now on my 10.5" '95Cobra R wheels.

    the first was an opinion, the second was a fact. yes, 275s will fit on a 10.5" wheel, but it will be very small, especially if its a kuhmo, they run smaller. i would go w/ AT LEAST a 295

    here's a recent thread with some other opinions of 275s on a 10.5" rim. Yes, apparently they will fit, (this is the first Ive heard of anyone actually running 275s on a 10.5") BUT they will be a stretch and your rim will be a little more exposed succeptable to curb rash. Get at least a 295.

    I can't post any pics now because its night time, but helty is right, they rim is exposed a little so they are more suseptable to curb rash. Although 1st off, you shouldn't be hitting curbs :p and secondly, if you're hitting curbs with your REAR wheels, well then you deserve to scuff them up because thats just plain terrible driving!

    So i wouldn't worry abou tit, especially if you're only keeping them on for a short time. But as i said, i have them on my car, 555Rs and they are sticky, even though they are small on the wheel :) 315s would be ideal though!

    HAHAHAHAHAHA I see helty made his FOR SALE text larger and more bold! HAHAHAHAHAH

    you're telling me. People want you to practically give them the damn things. Ive had serious offers of $125! They're BRAND F'kin NEW! :rolleyes:

    I have had some decent offers though, $250 by several people. Thing is I dont NEED to sell them, just wondered if I could get a real good offer to minimize the loss. Anyway, dont give them away, someone will make you a respectable offer :nice:

    well with shipping having to be included, if they offer more than 250 they might as well buy from somewhere else. I know I got my nitto's from discount tire direct for 300 shipped.

    actually its a local guy whos wanting them, so no shipping involved. I got em from discount tire too and it was $300 + shipping. $145/tire + $10 service charge (wtf?) and shipping.
