Default 18” Titans, Looking for the right tire

Hi all, I looked through a ton of posts and did not see the answer I was looking for. Can anyone post up some pics running 18” titans, along with their tire size? I am more looking for the right tire size on stock suspension for now, but need to see how different tire sizes look. I have the rims, will bore this weekend and want to get the tires on then as well, just don’t know what size tire is best to get the look I want.

Second, what do I do to simply level the rear end?

I run 235/45/18. 2 inch blocks in the back should level things out. I'll try to post a pic this afternoon.

Look in my profile. Put 2 pics in the mine album. Not sure how to move them here.

For the lowering blocks, do you have a recommendation? I ONLY SEE 3” FROM SUMMIT RACING.

Your local parts store should have them. If not eBay.

I've got 235/60R18 Nittos in the picture below:



They rubbed a little when making a sharp turn, so I went with 225/60R18 YOKOHAMA GEOLANDAR the last time. No one but me has ever noticed a visual difference, they clear better, and get a little bit better MPG.

Thanks JP. A little too beefy for me. I am going to do a 2” drop in the rear and go with 235/45 and see what happens. Those are the same rims I have too just painted silver.

If you wanted the exact same height as 195/70R14 tires, you'd go with 245/35R18.

35 series is expensive, though. 60 series isn't.

Look up the size tires you have on there now, not the [TIRE HEIGHT], then go over to the 18" wheels and find what's the same [TIRE HEIGHT].

I think my speedo is off by about 2 mph. Nothing major. I would recommend start collecting the parts for the v6 brakes if you don't already have them. Single piston calipers were a little sketchy sometimes. Real difference in the rotating mass from 14" to 18".
