his 235 although it sounds crazy really isnt that bad, think about it even though its a 235 width it still has a 40 side wall so alot of stretch is in that huge side wall.

See not crazy


for reference, 255/40/18 on a 12. There was actually about 2-4mm of exposed barrel with this stretch -
bender i donno why you like such big side walls, i will have to take pics of the wheels, i put a 225/30/20 on a 9.5, now thats a stretch. and a 305/25/20 on a 12

you can run that because of the sidewall, but you also have to remember brand makes a difference, some tires run small and there for the stretch will be greater with the same size, and visa versa, a tire that runs large will give you less stretch

thank you

and that's a serious stretch i would love to go in on some ishh like that but i hear boost isn't to friendly when it comes to stretch but then i see people drift in some wheel setup like that so i don't know what to believe...
Putting them on the car is more effort than I honestly wish to exert on the car. Think it might be time to change platforms.....

Top 5 reasons I like such big sidewalls-

#5- they fit the way I want with the rim widths I run

#4 They don't look so big to me

#3 I like to pretend they're whitewalls

#2 the bigger tire diameters give me extra ground clearance/versatility I need to daily drive

And the #1 reason I like big sidewalls is............ I live in Los Angeles

I like the wheels but not a fan of the stretch.
