    The majority of wheel/tire sites call for a 9" minimum wheel width for a 275/40 tire, depending on the tire.

    When in doubt, go to the mfrs site(they're the ones providing the warranty) and see what they have to say.
    In the case of the BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S 275/40/20 tire, they show Rim Width Range (Min/Max) of 9" - 11".
    With the published sectional width based on a 9.5" rim width.

    You’re an animal. Freakin encyclopedia and very much appreciated

    I talked to Tire Rack a couple of times prior to the rims and tires I liked. They felt the Comp 2 AS 275 should be great on a 9.

    Inplan on throwing some Holy Water on them prior to Saturday’s install.

    No...I have a nephew that moved up there a long time ago. Think he works for the post office. Last time I saw him he had a black Charger.

    So Jack44...do you have the comps in the front and the MT 305/35-20 ET Street S/S DR's in the rear? How long of a burnout do you do on those S/S's. Great 60' and 1/4 mile.

    So how did the 315's on 11" rims work out?
    Any fender well manipulation required?
    Rim offset?
    Do they stick out a bit beyond the fender?
    Spacer?
