Needing advice on tire sizes

788 Views 9 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Turtles_ride
Hello! I just purchased a 2012 Tribeca (my 5th Subaru and 2nd EZ36 powered one!) and love it so far!

I've just put some Blizzaks on the stock wheels in the stock size (255/55/R18), and picked up some 18x8.5 ET35 wheels for a great price to use as a summer setup.

I've been considering going for something like 255/40/R18 on the new wheels, but want to know if there are any issues I'll run into? Other than the speedometer being off, and it looks like it would be about a 3 inch drop.

I would also suggest invetigating the offset of the new rims, even though they are the same size they could rub on tight radius turns (although with smaller tires that is less likely). If you want that thin of a wall on your tire i would suggest going up to the proper 20inch rim, but at least make sure the tire is rated for the weight of our Tribecas (che thikkkkk mang) J
