    You will most likely rub on full lock for sure. I'd go 255 or 265 to play it safe. 275 will fit though.

    Depends on the offset of your wheel, but more then likely yes they will fit.

    The offset of the fr500 arent bad at all. I say go for it unless u mind the rub on full lock. You never need that much tire up front unless u race or something lol.

    cant wait to put the new wheels and tires on also went with black lug nuts on the all black fr's. I have always wanted this look. Thanks Win I like the falken 40 sidewall but I wanted a tire with more tread life more then width although the 295 measures out to be 12'' wide. and the 275 is 10 1/4

    I will be putting 275/35/18s up front on my car.. But I am on Race springs so it isnt slammed..

    275s is a few sizes down too.. But will eventually go wider again. But I like to corner. so there is that


    like others said you should be fine. and might possibly rub a bit at full lock.. but you should be ok

    I will answer all questions even mine after today. getting everything mounted and balanced at the tire shop then I can finally throw them on the car.

    Pics?


    I ran 275's up front for a few years with no real rubbing issues.
    The only problem I had was on the highway I had problems with the ruts made by the big trucks.
    The 275's did not fit well and sometimes the steering would be unstable. Went to a 255 and its not as bad.
