View Full Version : Biggest tires on stock rims?

01/14/2016, 02:42 PM
Hey guys time for some new tires but im a lil confused. My rims are the stock 5 spoke vehicross rims. The tires I have on right now are 235/70/16 that I bought the car with. Now I see people putting on 18 inch tires on the same rim was there ever an 18 inch version of the same rim? And whats the widest and largest tires i can fit on these stock 16s? I really wanna get the nitto trail grapplers but they are 285 width so it wont fit? thanks for the help people!

Only the '99s came with 16s on them. After that they were 18s, but the same style. I'm not positive but I think the width was 7" for both styles.

Just remember to look up the info about trimming your wheel well...

285/75 is a VERY large size to put on stock 7" wide rims. I can say that I had 265/70r16's on mine without any trimming. 285's would be both wider AND taller & require a rather large amount of trimming, I'd wager. I currently have 265/60r18's, and I had to trim a bit on the front of both front fender wells. Based on that experience, I'm positive that 285/75 would require a HUGE trim. Plus, the speedo would probably be off by 10mph.
