Carrera Sport Wheels with 295 (vs. 305 rears)

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm thinking of picking up the Carrera Sport Wheels (11.5J x 19H2). The TSB says to put 305s on the year (I guess because of the 11.5" width vs. the 11" stock), but do I really need to do so? I've read on the web that different size tires can fit the same size rim? Any issues with putting the 295s on these wheels? Thanks in advance!

Carrera Sport offsets are 55 front/67 rear, vs 57 front/67 rear on other factory wheels. Rim widths are 8.5"/11.5" vs 8"/11" on other wheels.

I would think you'd be fine with 295's on the 11.5 inch rims, but check with the folks at Wheel enhancement since they have plenty of experience in this area.

Thanks for the replys guys. Paul gave me the smack I needed. I was thinking of trying to save a few bucks given the global credit crisis, but with the price difference--% wise--I really wouldn't be saving anything. And I checked the Michelin website and the 295s are not rated for an 11.5 rim.
