I have to replace my rear tires and figured that I might as well go bigger. I'm not looking to replace the wheels because I happy with the stock 17's. Well enough with the

Will 275/40/17 fit on the stock rear rim? I'm thinking of going with 245/45/17 on the front and I have read where they will be fine, but I'm just not sure on the rears.
Also are the Hancook HR405 tires any good? I actually try to drive my car and am not looking to slide off the side of a mountain. This is the deal I'm looking at

Thanks for the help and as always,

Jeff

Jeff, you might be able to get away with 245F and 255R, but not what you were suggesting. Also, you'd probably have to drop to 45's instead of the 50's.

Sort-of. I know what size is recomended by Nissan. I need to know if I can go with a 235 in front and a 245 in rear, or even go a little bigger?

:doh: It's a good thing you guys are not doctors or else I would be dead! :nana: :rolf2:

That was 6 months ago. With that said, I think Smooth is dead on with the 245/45/17 in front and 255/45/17 in the rear. When it is time for new tires again I will be getting this set up. I....MUST.....STOP.......DOING.......BURNOUTS!!! :shiftdrive:

Don't blame me. This thread was started a month before I was even a member here.

So you recomend 255 rear and 245 front?

Yes, it will more than likely fill out very nicely and actually give you a more aggressive look. And your contact patch will increase, giving you better cornering capability. Have fun drifting!

To me drifting (all be it fun as ****) is a waist of rubber. Just save your bald tires for that, then again I dont drift because there is nowhere around to do it without fear of slamming into something like a pole.

Yes 245/45/17 on front and 255/45/17 on back.

Hehe, I meant drifting around corners.

Yeah, those sizes are perfect for what you want. Good luck to both of you.

So don't go with a 255/50/17 on the back? Why 45 instead of 50?

Sorry, I don't know much about tires... Thanks for the help!
