    Default 325 tire fit on 18x9 wheel?

    Anyone know if a 325 size tire will fit on an 18x9 wheel. found a good set of chrome wheels but is 9'' wide enough to hold that wide a tire?

    check the tire manufacturers site but quickly looked at coopers site. the tire that they had in a 325/60/18 (also a 325/65/18 the specs were a 9-12 on a recomended range and there measurements for the tire were done on a 9.5 wide rim. the other they had in a 325/80/16 was a range of 8.5-11 with a measured rim of 9. so you should be good.

    Thanks man! Also I just found a great deal on 20'' MB rims for $123 a piece and some 325/60/r20 tires. The tires say the rim range is 9.5-10.5 but these rims are 20x8.5 but are a great deal. Will those tires fit?

    Ha yeah I use that site all the time! I forgot it told you recommended rim width. It says 9-10 so i'd say 8.5 can fit alright. Especially for the kinda deal it is.

    Sounds like a great buy....when are you planning to make the move? Your truck will look great with new wheels. They are on my list as well, but my list is very long and not sure when I will get around to it. I hope soon!

    Hopefully I can get them ordered tomorrow! I have to set aside a weekend coming up to install my body lift so I can clear those 325's haha. I can't wait to see those tires stick out just past the wheel flares
    Your truck will look great with some aftermarket wheels to! I wish I had some nice rocky scenery like you've got to take some pictures haha
