Mine are -5. The offset makes no difference in the way the tire looks and thats what a 275 will look like on a 10" wheel thats why I posted that. Now OP run a 255 stretch and it will look great 265 will look ok. If Advan A048 came in a 255 fitment I would have them. You guys are missing the point. Now the offset matters on the way the wheel sits under the wheel well and how the tire will rub so you run a stretch tire. To all the Hellaflush kids on here that don't understand wider tire for better traction as well. Stretch tires look go no practical use tho and my car is not vip so I want traction anyways. Use over looks!!!!
Hate to not sound ignorant like you unfortunately do in that post but both Klaus and I obviously think that the correct tire width for a specific rim width is the intelligent (and good looking) choice. 255 on a 10.5" wheel is definitely stretched (they were even stretched a little with 3 different tire brands on my 9.5" wheels). Maybe you just never learned about that. I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and not jump to name calling. Besides, it would be hard for someone to challenge me in a battle of intelligence anyways.

P.S. You would have never seen stretched tires and thought they looked so cool if negative offset progression hadn't brought that style into the mainstream.

The point I was trying to make to them was that the offset don't change the way a tire looks on a 10" rim. The offset doesn't change the rims width just how it fits the car. OP asked what a 10" rim looks like with a 275!

^^We all know the offset doesn't change the way a tire looks on the rim, no need to call anyone stupid. The point being made is that the offset affects which tire you chose for that rim. High offset you can go with wider tires low offset you need smaller tires. I ran 265/30/19 on a 19x10+19 setup now I'm running 18x12 with 5Xmm offset and I have 315/30/18's.

I know but the others don't understand this and they come at me and say I am wrong.

Haha alright man slow down and read for comprehension. Offset DOES matter when it comes to what size tire will fit on the car. Nobody said it changes how it looks on the wheel. You even said yourself "Now the offset matters on the way the wheel sits under the wheel well and how the tire will rub so you run a stretch tire". This is of course wrong because if the wheel doesn't fit correctly with an appropriate sized tire then you bought the wrong offset for the width of wheel you purchased. A 10 inch wheel will fit CORRECTLY anywhere between a 275 and a 305. Yes correct means no stretch- it's unsafe, is outside of the manufacturers specifications of a SAFETY DEVICE (yes your tires are a safety device) and honestly looks juvenile because again your diminishing function for the sake of form (or at least what you think looks good).

Clear now?

OP.... I hope you laughed off the 255 suggestion!

Dude you don't even know what offset is. You said, "the offset is how far the rim is from the center of the wheel."

The offset of a wheel is the distance from its hub mounting surface to the centerline of the wheel. The offset can be one of three types (measured in millimeters).*

Zero Offset

The hub mounting surface is even with the centerline of the wheel.

Positive

The hub mounting surface is toward the front or wheel side of the wheel. Positive offset wheels are generally found on front wheel drive cars and newer rear drive cars.

Negative

The hub mounting surface is toward the back or brake side of the wheels centerline. "Deep dish" wheels are typically a negative offset.

If the offset of the wheel is not correct for the car, the handling can be adversely affected. When the width of the wheel changes, the offset also changes numerically. If the offset were to stay the same while you added width, the additional width would be split evenly between the inside and outside. For most cars, this won't work correctly. We have test fitted thousands of different vehicles for proper fitment. Our extensive database allows our sales staff to offer you the perfect fit for your vehicle.

Thanks, but you forgot to reference wiki on that. Here's how tires were originally designed to fit wheels. Feel free to hate generously.

I agree with you Bartledoo.........

What is the point of having wide wheels if you are not going to maximize the amount of rubber that you put on the ground? Why use stretched tires and leave your very expensive wheels (wheel lips) exposed to the first curb that you park next to? All for the sake of "tucking" your tires or "laying frame"? I think that I am just too old.........

Most of the people on here are running stock 1UZ/GE motors. I know I have a hard time getting traction with my 265. Next year I am going with a widened fender and new wider drum pieces so I am sitting at 12" wide + I get a 6" lip yeah!!!!

Wider tires do help with traction but many don't realize how much traction can gained with a taller sidewall.
