Can I fit 295 Pilot Sports on the back like this?

Hi guys,

I am just wondering if anybody has any idea if I can fit a 295/30/19 Pilot Sport on the rear like this AD08 on the back. I know PS2s have a pretty chunky and soft sidewall, I am worried they won't fit like this?

The wheels are VMR VB3 10" with a +25 offset. Pic is from EAS, hope you guys don't mind - and thanks for your advice so far!

AD08s are wider than PS2 so you should be fine

The AD08 also has a much stiffer sidewall

I agree any 295 out back on a 10" +25 will fit with no problems.

+1

The AD08's also run about 10mm-15mm wider than a normal sized tire like the PS2 which actually has a really rounded sidewall.

Chances are that it wont look identical to our car, but you'll still get a really good looking stance

That tire looks pretty wide for that rim.
I have 295s on a 10.5" width rim and it looks perfect.
PS2s btw

Along the same lines...would a 295/35/19 fit? I want to get RE11 for the RAC wheels but saw a post that they might not fit?

The 35 is closer to the stock diameter than a 30 series 295.

No you can't run a 295/35/19 and that is not closer to stock. That will be way taller than stock. You might want to rerun the math on that:

Stock Tire - 265/35R19
295/30R19
295/35R19

Overall Diameter: 26.30 in 668.02 mm
Overall Diameter: 25.96 in 659.38 mm
Overall Diameter: 27.12 in 688.84 mm

Thanks KT. I made a mistake, was looking at the 285/35/19 RE-11.
