will a 285/35R18 fit in the rear? with ROW 030?

Recommended Posts

i am looking into a new set of rear tires and the tire guy asked if i could fit a 285/35R18 in the rear so to increase my options....

i currently have the 285/30R18 P-Zeros on there.

Well, I'm not sure what you are after, here are the measurement differences:


Sidewall: 3.4 in

Radius: 12.4 in

Diameter: 24.7 in

Circumference: 77.7 in

Revolutions/Mile: 815.0


Sidewall: 3.9 in

Radius: 12.9 in

Diameter: 25.9 in

Circumfrence: 81.2 in

Revolutions/Mile: 780.0

Besides the tire being 0.5 inches taller in the sidewall and 1.2 in overall diameter you speedometer error will increase (revs/mile) by 4.5%. So your speedometer would be slow (i.e. speedo reads 60 MPH you are actually traveling 62.7).

Perhaps Viken can add some comments?

well with that much difference, i think i'll try to stay with a 30 series... i was just looking for more tire options, the slightly fuller wheelwell would have been ok too, however it seems to throw everything else pretty far out of whack....

thanks Loren

out of curiosity, do you think there would be any rubbing issues with a 35 series?
