18" Titan Wheel - Tire Recommendation
 
could not find answer after some browsing the site but,

What is the max tire height size you can run on 18" titan wheels from 2007 titan so there is no modification (i.e. rolling or going to pathy fenders in front)?

I have seen that 245/45/18 looks nice, but, can you run 245/50/18 or even a 60 series tire without rubbing etc.
w/o any fender mods?

Great site and i app the feedback - newbie.

I have a 97 HB xcab wth all the options. purchased with 60k in 2002 and it has been driven sparingly and garaged as a spare vehicle.
it now has 119K and just did timing chain etc.

if you have any kind of drop you cant go taller than a 45 and even then depending on overall tire size it may rub

I run 225/40 and think they are perfect

but i also have a 4/5 drop

thanks! no drop just stock height. do you think 225/50 or 225/60 will work ?

Lowlyfe 10-02-2013 03:52 AM

The overall diameter of the 225/50 is 26.9" tall
And the 225/60 is 28.6" tall

What size are the tires on the truck now? Im thinking a 60 series tire would be pushing it...

Here's a calculator that you can mess around with to find the right tire size now and in the future.

thanks for all the great advice and a great forum.
i got the titans bored out and installed today.
cheap price off cl and then $100 to get bored out.
went with 225/55/18 for smoother ride - it is nice!!
no rubbing as it is stock and not lowered - it is my weekend warrior to make runs to Home Depot etc.

Here are some more pics of the new shoes
 
225/55/18 do provide a nice a ride and still looks good as a daily driver - for those curious

i been looking for a post like this, i bough the titan 18" rims and been searching to buy tires and this post just answer all my questions i had about them...

but leaves me with one different question about borehole of the rims... what is the right size to get the titan rims bore????

Lowlyfe 01-09-2014 05:19 AM

The bore needs to be 4" exactly and you dont bore all the way through as far as I know, just deep enough to clear the tabs on the hubs
