    I'm looking into buying these:

    Info about them here

    I have 3 questions:

    1. Will my stock tires (P235/55/R17) fit on that rim okay?
    2. What is the max (width) tire size I can go (for the rear...) on these rims?
    3. What would be the price for those tires in "Nitto NT 555 Extreme Performance"?

    Thanks in advance!

    1. I would say NO!!!! on those fitting and if they did somehow they would look very very weird. On a 9 inch rim you can fit a 315/35 (nitto) they will bow out but still will be safe and fit, they price for the 315's is right around 130-155 depending on the place I just got my 315 BF'S DRs for about 160 but there a little more I beleave..

    A 315 is NOT a correct fit on a 9 inch wheel.

    Biggest I'd put on those wheels would be a 275/40.

    What are you looking to do on the front for tires?

    I have put 285's on a 8 inch rim with no problem, 315 do fit just fine on a 9 inch rim just ask anyone on this site most people are running 315's on there 9 inch rim, I would go a least with a 285 that will fill up the whole rim, 275's leave a little bit of space

    Just because it has been done, it does not mean it is a correct fitment.

    There is no advantage of going with a wider tire if it has the profile of the St. Louis arch.
