Will 275/40/18 on 18x9.5 rims work?

Will those size tires work on a 2004 gto without fender rolling? Not sure that size tire would work for the front, but what tire could i put on the front to make the 9.5 rim fit? Need to know asap! Thanks

Depends on the offset. You'll probably need a fender roll though. I use 265/35/18 on all four with a 18x9.5 35mm offset. Slight fender roll was all i needed. You'll need offset strut mounts to make a 275 work on the front. I have three brand new sets, pm me if interested in one.

Their offset? Look on the inside. It should be stamped somewhere. If you can't find it measure the distance from the back mounting face to where a straight edge is laid across the back rim.

The "correct" size would be 275/35/18 for the rear if you go with a 235/40 or 245/40 up front
