    I am looking to upgrade tires on my 2011 GT500, was looking at the Toyo R888 305/30/18 tire size and wanted to know if that would fit on my wheel. Also if I was to do this could I keep my factory Goodyear tires on the front?

    Are you asking if an 18" R888 will fit on the 19" wheel in your thread title?

    You can keep your Goodyears on the front.

    If your running that thin of a sidewall I would stick with 285's and run the same tire on all four corners.

    I apoligize everyone I meant 305/30/19! Will these fit without a problem with a stock wheel, 295/30/19 I believe will be too small of a diameter.

    I ran the 305/18 on my stock 9.5" wheel with no issue. Many are doing it.

    I run 305/35/20 Nitto 555r on mine. 30 series is way too short.
