Default Flush Tire/Wheel??

Is there a tire/wheel width combo that make the rim flush with the tire?? almost as if it were squared?

Most tires i see are fatter than the rim or stretched on...but a very select few look so exact its almost a 90 degree angle.

easiest way to find out what tires will be "square" with the rim, is simple math. The first set of numbers (i.e.-195, 205, 215, etc..) are measurements in MM. So take the width of your rim, for example ^^^9.5'' = 241.29999999999998 mm. So in this case a 245 SHOULD have a flush sidewall, BUT that is also where the second set of numbers on the tire comes in to play. The aspect ratio of the tire will manipulate the shape of the sidewall. Too tall, it will look like a balloon, to short, it will look stretched. To get the aspect ratio divide the second number into the first number.

May sound confusing, but its actually very simple. YOu can also check out tirerack.com, and there is a full write up on choosing the right tire. I know that sounded like an advertisement, but there is some good info on their site.

a 9.5J rim is actually 10.5" wide. some tire manufacturers list how wide the actual tires are on their websites. a 245 tire isnt always exactly 245mm wide. usually, if you go up 2 sizes than normal, the tire will be square with the rim if thats what youre going for.

And don't forget, not all tire manufacturer's tires are sized the same. For example, Federal tires run wider than Nankang.
