    I can get a good deal on a set of 295/45/18 Nitto Nt555's, but I dont know if I want to run that much sidewall on my 18x10 saleens.

    Anybody running this tire, or have pics on an sn95?

    There is a reason why those odd sizes are always cheaper.

    If you are lowered even slightly your sidewall would probably make fender contact on a regular basis.

    What is a good deal and where are they located? That's the size I need for a set of Lightning wheels I have.
