    Im going to get some tires and rims in the future because my current ones are flat topped... :dunno:

    So im going to buy the rims from americanmuscle.com and I would like to know if I could fit 335 tires on their 10.5 17 inch bullit rims. Also are theyre sumitomo 315 HTR Z tires are any good or should I get the nittos?

    Do you guys think I should get the rims from american muscle and then get the tires(maybe 335s) somewhere else?

    Sumitumos dont hook well. Go with Nittos if you want traction.

    yeah, those summitomos are that great of a tire....i would stick with 315s, even though 335s look badass. and you save alot of money by buying both wheels and tires through americanmuscle.com

    well since most 18" rims come in a 10" width, a 295 is fine. but with a 10.5 i would do at least a 305
