Those are some good looking tires in the pics. Can I ask why are changing the old tires? What brand are the old ones and how well did you like them? I would like to see post install pics of the cooper st maxx.

^^^ yes sorry I forgot to say that they are Goodyear duratracs, I bought them used with about 60-65% tread left... maybe cause they were used but they never balanced right after 4 attempts and handled terrible in the rain, so after months of reading reviews I bought the cooper s/t maxx from discount tire direct.. I'll definalty post up pics when there mounted this week I just picked them up this weekend .

I measured the backspacing and found that these rims have a 5" backspace. From the charts on the net, this is a 0mm offset??? I think I'm going to try a 295/70/18 tire and pray for the best.

Just be ready to trim a little. As long as you are willing to accept that, you should be fine.

You'll be fine with the 295/70's..if you have to trim anything, it'll be plastic and if you take your time cutting it with a nice sharp razor blade you can make it look like you never cut it, just follow the factory contours.

Just got these baby's powder coated!!!! I'm excited. I've got new lugnuts and tires on their way. The corrosion on the backside was a little heavy, so it cost a total of $250 for all 4 rims, but I'm happy.

How wide is the wheel you mounted them on? I want to get the s/t maxx as well in 275/70/18 but the spec sheet lists max wheel width at 8.5" and the wheel I want is 9"
