8inch rim tyres.

I just put on a set of 245 45series 17 Kumho's on my wheels today ... has anyone gone wider on a 8 inch rim??? i saw a XF ute today with 265's on the front and 275's on the back ... talk about over kill on the front!.. but he must of had 9's and 10's.

They cost me 248 bucks each ... with a 40dollar per tyre discount.

Re: 8inch rim tyres.

I had 265s on the back of My XE and 235s on the front. The 265 looked a bit dodgy they seemed to over hang the rim, then again the 235s looked too big for the rim aswell. The tyre guy was reluctant to put them on for me but he did. Im pretty sure the rims were standard. Its currently runnin 225s or 235s all round not sure, my old man drives it now.

Re: 8inch rim tyres.

i ran the 245's on the s-pack rims and it looks fairly phat when the car was lowered the tyre dood was also very reluctant to do so he reckoned the tire walls could blow out under heavy cornering loads
i toldhim that this did not matter as i was only using this combo at the drags anyways so he fitted them for me.

and a question sincei am here do you know if you can run a set of 275's on the arse of a ea (with appropiate rims of coarse)?? i wouldnt mind fitting this kinda rubber under the back of the ea till i got some mini-tubbs to house the planned 325's

cheers.joe.

Re: 8inch rim tyres.

I curently have 255/40/17 (Kumhos actually) on my 7.5" rims.
I used to have 295/50/15 on 8" rims.

I have never had a problem with either, and the 295 setup was raced around Eastern Creek.
Although I did have 50psi in them for the track.

Rick.
