    I was debating between 295/45 or 265/35. My buddy is running 295s but he just informed me that his wheels are widened.

    I know some are of the opinion it’s too wide for the wheel. I’ve never encountered an issue arising from doing this and I’ve sold and mounted a lot of tires. I drive my car hard and toss it around corners like it weighs have of what it does. Never an issue. For what it’s worth.

    It's not an opinion, its following the tire manufacturer's recommended specs. I also do know of someone years ago who crashed his low mile DTR from a squishy rear sidewall causing the car to sway and spin out, the kind you'd get with the boomer tire stance of putting 295's on a 8" wide wheel.

    But stance kids love to do the opposite (narrow tires on wide wheels) and you still see plenty of those cars on the road, so whatever I guess.

    Yes. You wouldn’t believe the things I’ve done to mount stretched tires. That I do believe is way more dangerous.

    a 295/45 isn’t nearly as sidewall compliant as a big bloated off road tire mud truck tire squeezed on a narrow wheel. That’s been done forever.

    As to your story about the dtr, I’ll just say there are some drivers on the road that shouldn’t be.

    I run the Nitto 295/45 on stock rim.
    Had a blowout last week going 85 on freeway. Held up well till I pulled over.
    No warranty on Japanese tires.

    Oh wow. Ok, it seems to that a 295 tire is fine on a widened wheel or stock size it’s all on the person.
