What fun is that...just saying... I like talking to people. Isn't that the idea of a forum? Believe me I do giggle some times... I mean google...

Well it's a waste of time for me and everyone else if you could care less about searching on your own. I don't care if it is a forum.

Try searching more and you'll learn on your own instead of us doing the investigative work for you. Then you also won't have to post 5 threads a day asking questions.

Re: Wheel and tire combination

lol...sorry I didn't know you had to investigate. I thought you or someone out there had all the answers! Just to let you know,I'm retired and I'm having a hell of a good time with my Jeep and this forum,"sort of". I'll back off with all the questions and search for answers in the future. GEEZ...and by the way speak for your self and not everyone else. Seems like every time I get in a conversation about something on this Jeep Garage forum someone has to be a smart butt...
If I decide to post a question in the future
PLEASE do not respond to my questions if you feel like your wasting your time because it's actually wasting mine if your going to bonk about it.

Cheers

Because technically it is wrong. It can cause uneven wear patterns. When the sidewall is bowed to fit a narrower rim, it starts to pull the outside tread blocks down. This can cause the tire to wear in the center a little more then normal.

In extreme conditions I would say you're correct but when speaking about 10mm outside of the norm id say that's not necessarily true.

You also have to factor in the actual width of the tire being used.
As you know a 295 width wheel is not the same with every manufacturer.

Years ago I drove a 4th gen fbody and all the stock SS, WS6, Firehawks had 17x9 inch wheels with 275/40/17's.

295 is 20mm or .787 inches wider than a 275 and obviously a 9" rim is 1 inch wider so it's a better fit.
As long as you proper inflate you won't have an issue.

IDK why you'd say that. we gave you the answer. we did say you can mount a 295 on a 9inch wide wheel. there is no confusion there.

Well when more then one person gives you a yes answer, its a "we" answer. If you think this forum is twisted, try any of the other jeep forums. They are far worse

I think your the confused one here. I used to mount and balance tires. How do you think i know it will fit? Plus another member had provided proof that they fit. Yet you wanna cry about a mixed answer because others say no? Even when evidence has been provided that shown otherwise you still wanna go do it on your own.

So i say to you good luck and godspeed. Im out and done with this thread
