Re: 265s on 18x8s?

with such a low profile wheel i would have thought that 245 to be about as wide you should go

protects the rims from curb damage and stops the shoulder wear
they look neat as well but wont fit the front

Nicer if you had 8.5's or 9 inch, they will go on but you will have to be on the ball with tyre pressure cos its going to wear the centre cos the tyre will lift in the middle being unable to flatten of becouse of your slightly smaller wheel. and its going to squirm around on the rim if you wanna get freaky and do some high speed cornering! ..........you have been warned

Yes, you will find all tyres have "approved rim width range" as part of their specs, and according to these 265s require at least 9". They also say for best performance and track use, using the minimum allowed rim width is not recommended.

My List of Quintessential Performance Fords:
GT40 MkII (1966); Cosworth DFV V8 (1967); Boss 429 Mustang (1969); Escort BDA (1969); Falcon GTHO Phase III (1970); ..yawn.. (1971-1984); RS200 (1985); Sierra Cosworth RS500 (1987); Ford GT (2005)?
