Default Rear Tire Fitment

Hello,

I am planning to put 265 40 R18 tire on the rear wheel of my 2005 350z. Will this set up okay?

Thanks

It depends on what size front tire is on your Z.

Fronts that are standard size (i.e., overall height) work well with 265/40-18 on the rear. I've run both 225/45-18 and 245/40-18 Front with 265/40-18 Rear on my 350 Performance Model with it's very fussy VDC, and I had no problems.

Sure- but the OP hasn't specified what size fronts s/he's running. Some folks come on here asking for advice in situations like this and never come back (until they find VDC acting up).

You are very correct. Hope he pays attention to the front tire specs I posted.

Actually, so many people do not understand overall circumference (or the tire's diameter), and get hung up on sidewall height or tire width. Of course sidewall height and treadwidth by themselves are meaningless measurements. It's the combination of these measurements that give you the information you need to determine the correct tire size.
