Why do you want a wheel that wide? Most owners don't go more than 9.5". In addition, tires that wide are not gonna perform well in Wyoming snow y'know.

Welcome to the forum, by the way .

I've used 275 width tires on 10-inch wide wheels on my other car but I think 11 will strech the tire sideways, unless you are looking for the stretched look.

I've also not gone with 19" as the tires alone are a lot more for a 19 than an 18" or 20".

Welcome to the forum, by the way .
You're right, I just figured since I'm going with 18" wheels I could probably get away with a wider wheel. Is there anybody on here running a similar setup? 18" wheels sitting low? Thank you sir.

I'm definitely not wanting to stretch the tires, are you running 18s on yours? Can you post pics?
Thanks guys

When you say "sitting low", I assume you mean a low-profile tire (i.e. skinny sidewall)? Or do you mean lowering the entire car?

Once again, I hope you're just looking for summer, because you'll want a higher sidewall/narrow footprint tire for snow.

Op just so you know you can only run a 9" wide up front since you have KW co's. The offset would also need to be at least et10 so the inner wheel clears the spring perch.
