    just match the diameter of the factory tires with ones that are meant for a larger wheel.

    example being a 225/65-16 and 225-60-17, they only have a .36" difference in circumfrence.

    cause the stock size on my car now is a 215/60/16..and i found a thing online that said 215/50/18, 225/45/18, 235/45/18, 245/40/18 is about the same size. i lost the site so i didnt look up 17's.

    i just dont know if theyd rub on anything or not?

    if the tire diameter is the same as factory, i don't see a problem. they wouldn't grow that much due to centrifugal force....

    discount tire direct has a decent calc for this.

    I would try to stick with a 45-50 series tire just for comfort and handling. Anything smaller will ride like ass and handle like piss, and look ghey.

    don't get too upset.....There is a better chance of having Anthony swinging by my house in his supercharged silverado towing his GTO tonight then there is of this story being true.

    I have 245/45R18 on my 89 and 235/45R18 on the 94. Links in my sig. The 245/45R18 used to rub a little on full lock, but whatever was rubbing has worn down so it doesn't do it any more. The 235s are a little narrower and a little smaller diameter. They are actually a perfect fit and never rubbed at all.

    you just have to keep in mind the offset of the rims aswell,
