I got the afs 10.5" wheels and the 315 nittos that Got look really wide is there going to be any fitment issues? do I need a wheel spacer? Just wondering before I try to put them on the car.:thumbsup:

You can either put a spacer on or shave down the IRS bolt that the tire will be in contact with..

Try doing it without any spacers! I have a convertible with 10.5's & Goodyear 315's on the back and the Goodyear's are wider than the Nitto's! I had some problems due to body flex, but after installing MM full length sub-frame connectors I haven't had a single rub. I also have the Steeda bushing kit with the round head bolt and the Steeda Sport Springs that lower the car 1". You shouldn't have any problems.

Try it without..agreed. If you need spacers it will probably be 1/8 or 1/4 at most..if I remember correctly. You could..if you have access to the tools shave half the head of the IRS bolt that rubs off too...315 Nitto's though are actually the smallest width of all the 315's out there.....which is weird but, true.

I also have a set of AFS 10.5's on the rear of an 03 plus im lowered about 1.5 inches, I have for a long time been running Toyo Proxes 295/35/18 with 275/35/18 on the fronts.

So my Toyo Proxes 295/35/18's were just starting to get warn looking and I too am wondering if I can go to Toyo Proxes 315 but will they fit, and in order to either stay the same hight of the front 275/35's or slightly taller,,,,,assuming 315's will fit without bolt issues and mine bolts are already shaved, do I need 315/35's ??? or 315/30's ?? Hopfully someone that realy knows there Sh*& will help us out on this complicated question

There is actually plenty of room between the tire and the bolt, the pic doesn't really show that

MUJM03Cobra-

Do you have the 18" or the 17" AFS wheels. They look like the 17's but not sure.

Thanks

They are 17's I dont think the 18's would fit with 315's. I think that it would hit the fender, but I dont know for sure. I wasn't willing to spend all of the extra money and they might not fit.

Thanks for the info. Now I am going to have to re-think this :(

just curious why you bought a 17x10.5 rim, just to put 315's? Ive got the 315 Nitto's on my stock rims and they work great...:thumbsup:

OK, I know this has been addressed some where back in history, but Im getting ready to do this and want to be sure they will fit without any problems, I shall lay it all out to be clear,

03 Cobra
lowered 1.5 inches
on the rear lets talk rears only, AFS 18X10.5's wheels

I have been running on the rear, Toyo Proxes, 295/35/18's we already ground down the bolts a little

can I, go with Toyo Proxes, (if they make them) 315/35/18's ?? with out problems, if you dont know, then you dont know, this is a lot of money im ready to spend and once there here Im stuck with them, so I would like to hear ONLY from those of you who really know, not to insult anyone, but if you were in my shoes you would understand you would not want to depend on maybe's,,,,thanks

I let one of my friends put the chrome wheels on his mustang and I had black wheels on mine. Needless to say he curved two of them so I let him buy me two 10.5 wheels to replace them and they look a LOT better than the 17x9's.

makes sense...:thumbsup:

Dave B...you could give it a shot, but the 315's dont look too much wider than the 295's...

Nitto 315's are the smallest of them all..if you bought any other 315's...you would need the 10.5 inch rim.

What does AFS say the ideal tire width is for the 18X10.5 ??

anyone know what they would say for the min and max??

InfamousSVT

Honestly the min or max will depend on the tire manufacture more than the rim itself.

Like Cobra330 said, the Nitto has the smallest width in a 315 tire measuring in at around 12.25" wide.

The Goodyear D3 315 tire measures a width of 12.75" wide.
Just check on the tire manufature's website and it should tell you what wheel size is ideal for the size of tire you are looking at.

Hope this helps.:)

we cannot find any 315/35/18's at all,,, none... no one at all makes anything bigger than a 295 for an 18 inch wheel
