[MENTION=8668]blackhorse[/MENTION] do you have any pictures of you rear tire's sidewall? I thought the 255's would be way too narrow for a 10" rim.

Yes , it's not ideal but I have little options . Here , 265 to 315 tires are rare and very expensive . I can't buy outside because is agains't law import tires. So , I had to improvise and in the end the result isn't too bad , IMHO .

Here are some old pics when the rear tires was 255/45 Continental Contitech . Now I have 255/45-18 Toyos Proxes and they are somehow "fatter" than continentals (will take a pic later). The fronts now , are Pirelli Phantoms 235/45-17 , and not 235/35-17 that I wrote in previous post (already edited) .

i would have issues with that sidewall profile being somewhat smaller in the rear than the front lol. only issue with larger wheel in rear is that you have to settle for a lower profile tire in the front. you can't do more tire up front to match the total height of the 18's i the rear...at least you shouldn't imo...looks off to me.

Tony nailed it, have to keep the sidewall size the same front to rear for it to look right. which means you're either making the front tire shorter or the rear tire taller.

That's why now the front tires are 235/45-17 . The 255/45-18 in rear looks bigger than before .
In that pics , the sidewall of the front was huge (225/55-17) , even if I had 305/35-18 there .

Will take pics later .

I always thought if done correctly it could look sick like this one does.
