need help! I have the nismo wheels and want to put on falken AZENIS RT-615 but the tire sizes are wierd....

I have 245/40/18 and 275/40/18 Eagle F1's but i dont like those tires but i like the stance of the car now...keep in mind i know nothing about what "looks good" and what looks good....

what my choices are:
245/40R18 275/35R18(would different profiles look ok?)

or

245/40R18 295/40R18(would 295 even fit on the car??)

245/40/18 are fine in the front, as for 295/40/18 thats is a hell no. If you have the US LMGT4s the size is only 8.5 front and 9.5 rear, 285 is a tough and unsafe fit let alon 295 is just out right insane on a 9.5. just stick with 245/40/18 front and 275/40/18 rear.

K thanks! That was my main concern! SAFETY!

then i want it to look good as well! Cause i think 245-40-18 fronts and 275-35-18 rears dont look so hot!

thank you again!

With that offset you will need a very stretched tire, maybe a 255/40 front and 275/40 rear. That offset is pretty aggressive and you will most likely need to roll your fenders

Thanks...I wouldn't mind rolling the rears...But how much of a stretch do you think will be needed...I'm not a fan of the stretch look, I can handle a small amount but nothing too crazy.

You can run a 275 on the rear for a rpf1 18x10.5 +15. A 275/40 on a 10.5 is not "very stretched." I have a Azenis RT615 265/35 and its a mild stretch. I wouldn't go past a 275 without rolling the fenders though. I already have my fenders rolled because I am getting coilovers to do about a 2-1/2" drop.

my set up is 10.5 +15 all around on tanabe gf210. soon to be stance coilovers.
