We show the widest tire with no rubbing is a 255/45R-18. A 265/45R-18 shows as an extended fit so you may have some rubbing.

Give us a call if we can be of assistance.
I was told the 255/45/18 will rub in the rear. Clearance in the front, but rubbing in the rear. Can you verify that will work?? I ask because I'm within weeks of buying tires and I wanted 255's, but was told 245's were the widest I could do without spacers or some other modification.

10-4. I don't know where you went for tires, or what kind of tire you got, but $300 each is ridiculousness!! The only way I could see paying $1200 for tires is if you get lifetime balance, rotation, and alignments with them. Everything I've been looking at is $200 a tire, and that's with valve stems, TPMS, and old tire disposal fees.

I think I'm going to go with 245/45/ZR18 Nitto Motivos. Getting fantastic ratings by all the automotive magazine testers. All season tire with a 60,000 mile warranty. I have an on-paper quote from Discount Tire/America's Tire for installation & lifetime spin balancing, valve stems, lifetime rotations, TPMS servicing, and certificates for repair, refund, or replacement for $879.85 out the door price. Even the 255/40/ZR18 was $1009.57 out the door price. I've been doing some shopping around because with the number of miles I put on my car every year, I wasn't about to spend $800-$1000 on tires that I'd wear out in 2 years! I don't need winter tires, but with a cabin in the mountains, there are times when I need something that will get me through light snow and the Nittos are supposed to be great for that. The 60,000 mile warranty on a UHP All Season tire was the biggest selling point for me!

I have a 14 Impala LTZ with 245/45/19, I am looking to go wider, which is good with no rubbing issues that will stick out more?
