View Full Version : Tire stretch help work equip

11-08-2014, 02:55 PM
Okay so I got 17x10 and 17x12.5 work equips

I was thinking 215/40 and 255/40,
If any of you guys have these size rims with close or the exact tire measurement please post a picture, I would hate to pay up 500$ for these tires and not like the outcome, or too much stretch thanks guys.

10" = 254mm so 255 width tires for those wheels and for 12.5", you can get 325 wide tires. Welcome

Test fit them first.

Check bodywork variable

Check camber variable

Check amount of low variable.

We can't tell you shit, because you car is not setup like others. Just man up, take the wheel off, and measure that shit.

If it pokes, you stretch. If its sunk, you beef up.

If you need my help, take very detailed pics of your front and rear setup in the air with the wheels mounted. Use a jack with a hockey puck at the end of it to replicate coilover compression under load. If you car lifts up then you have hit max "lowness"

You can play with the jack and decide what amount of low will be needed to fit. You can also waste your time dialing your ruca's in and resetting them once done.

Fitment takes a while. Do it right or go to a professional and pay them.

255 on 12.5? hello stretch. I would go with a wider tire on the front and rear imo,
that is too much stretch for me.

I don't like the little stretch I have with 255's on my 10. Much less a 12.5 :ugh:
