    Tire size alternative

    Had a marauder a few years ago and was running nitto 555 sizes 255/40 front 265/50 rear (it was a 2003)… If my memory recalls correctly. I see those sizes are no loner available in the nittos. what other sizes are you all running on stock rims with no sidewall ballooning?

    thanks beforehand

    I think cars should be driven, not kept in garages their whole life. If you want to collect something, collect stamps.

    Are you looking for just rear? or a front/rear mix? 255/55R18's are/were a popular size with the Nitto 420S.

    Front and rear in a matching set. I had the 420's and they were tall. Just wondering if there is any other set like the 555's, a tad wider than stock sizes

    There is no brand making a 265-50-18. Front 235-50-18 or 255-45-18... rear 245-55-18, 255-55-18, or widen your rims and run 295-45-18, some run that size on stock wheel
