I dont like streched look at all, my kumho ku31 285s were pretty streched, the invo 305s are flush on my rim atm.

Got them for $290 each at St George tyres.

U got plenty of room up the back mate.

From memory you've got 10" wide +30 offset which works out pretty close to 9.5 +25 I've got on the back now

10.5 +22 will poke another 14-15mm which is pushing it

I'm not real keen about having to tweak rear guards hence looking at 285 to keep them clear...305 would be nice though

 

I'll dummy fit first and see what it's like

At least its AR grade for LAB use. I use it to etch brass and bronze samples to view the microstructure.

 

DONT etch your NOSE

Fg has about 15mm extra room to the guard from the hub compared to a BA by memory.

@OZYWALKER had 9.75s with 295 invos that fitted fine, what offset did u have Dan?

This seems like a really farking terrible idea. Just smoke some meth and be done with it, none of this gateway drug bullsh*t.

Probably gonna have to roll or trim the inner lip on the rear guards.
Should get away with a 5-10mm trim.

That tyre is way too big for the rim. Outside and inside  inch of tread doesn't even touch the road. My 285 invo on a 10 is flat at the edge . More rubber on the road with the smaller tyre

 

FAIL.

The same thing happened when I put 255's on the stock mags. Dropping the pressures to about 20 psi helped though but that's only good for going straight.

Yeah right,

Well considering its literally 2mm max past the rim edge and the contact patch of the tyre is pretty much all the way across id say your wrong.

Ohh and tyre not mounted has the exact rounding on the edges.

roll it through water

and hope that the water sticks to every surface? wouldn't some wet water-based paint do a better job to stick to the surface?

No. Water will be fine.
