I am currently running a et20, 9inch wide wheel with a 245 tire. With my current drop it just barely fits inside the fender (tucking), maybe a finger clearance btwn the outer fender and the tire. I test fitted a et22, 9.5 inch rim with a 275 tire on it and it wouldn't fit inside the fender.

Now here is my question: Will a et25, 10 inch rim fit inside the fender with say a 255 tire? 1010tires tire size calculator says a 255 will fit on a 10 inch rim, but is that true? stretch required? I know no1 can give me a 100% answer but is there a chance it could fit?

Hope this was clear enough lol Any help/input appreciated. Thanks:)

It was Valentine's Day you homo, I was busy sexing.

The rim will be 8mm further out, and the tires are about 5mm further. If you could fit a finger before, you'll be able to get the new ones on.

And they'll be stretched, but not too bad.

So if I throw some m5 fender liners and roll the outer fender lip (if possible). Then I should be alright? Or at the very worst just raise the car a little bit.

Would switching to a 265 would have it extend 2mm further than the rim? So any downside to running a 255 other than traction?

Oh btw, Sexing yourself doesn't count Jay, even on valentines day ;)

Yeah, that shit'll work.

Not 2mm exactly, in fact there's no mathematical way to figure it out, plus all tires aren't the same size. If you really had a finger of room, 265's may be pushing it. Try and find someone else with the same setup and see if it worked, my head hurts.

Now stop overthinking.
