I really want to run 325/60/18, but im not sure if it will contact the UCA or any frame/ suspension parts. I know I will need to massage the body a little. Anyone have a setup close to mine? Any input on what is needed to make these tires fit would be great.
If the are 18x10's they are really 11" wide, and so with a 0mm offset, their backspacing is 5.5", so a 325 could very well rub on the RC UCA.
Wheel manufactures don't count the lips in the width, so their advertised widths are about 1" wider. A 18x9 rim with 0mm offset has 5" of backspacing, becaused measured it is 10" wide.
A 325/60R18 on 18x10 w/0mm will also rub at the pinch weld about the same as a 18x9 with -12mm offset ... 4.5" backspacing, because both will stick out the same.
You will need the pinch weld mod if leveled. See the link in my sig.
