hey guys , starting the re lipping process now, im trying to find out what is the smallest tire I can stretch onto my rears.
I was on zilvia and seen some VERY agressive stretching, just wondering if theres anyone here that can add any input on how small a tire I can actually go with, or better yet post pics of their stretch.
I think I will be going with 235/35 on my front 10.5's, and for the rear im wondering if its possible to go with a 255/35????
Reason is im trying my best to not have to cut and modify my rear quarter panels, I want a strong roll/pull and thats it so going with the smallest tire possible is important.
Will post pics soon with a little DIY on lip changing/swapping as well for anyone interested.
heres a pic of my 10.5's which are going on the fronts now, they already have a nice lip, cant wait to get this new set up going.

*have to find out the hard way*
i didnt think the 245/35 on 13 would work thats crazy. I'll explain why because heres my 245/35 on 11.5 and 215/35 on 9.5
245 on 11.5
215 on 9.5
either way good luck, i'm a little scared to drive with this stretch but i def wouldnt attempt to stretch more
thanks mdsc, i was also skeptical but it seems like its possible so im going to give it a try.
after a while of researching im noticing that tire brand really plays a role in fitting , not sure why but it seems like it does.
and yea yours looks like a pretty agressive stretch already on 11.5, im wondering if all u guys used fire to get the tire on, or if u have ur own shop, because most places here wont install a wrong sized tire due to legal liabilities.
Here are my 245/35's on my 10.5's, somehow im going to have to get another 2+ inch stretch out of them its going to be quite extreme i think but hoping it works
I used Air cheetah, while the fire is cool and i've done it before cheetah is the way to go. The tire brand does make a difference but not a huge difference. Generals/continentals is what i have in the rear run large thats why i said its crazy that 245 works on 13" and looks the way it does.
