now, craziest component is he says they"re 18"s and also he"s gained stock GT 245/??/R17 tires ~ above them.i recognize the kids do every kinds of crazy stuff through rims and tires these days, but can someone define if this is OK, or is this guy a hack-job artist and i need to stay away from him? also, if you might identify the rims that"d be good too. But mostly ns would favor to know around the pros and cons of sticking tires on that dont belong.
A 17 customs tire will certainly NOT to the right on one 18 customs rim. If you also tried to mountain a 17 customs tire on an 18 inch rim that would start to rip the bead and the tire would certainly be totally useless. Its over an customs difference. Dont believe anything that guy is speak if that is quiet trying come tell girlfriend that. Tsw rims not bad, i think they are a sears bought brand.

more likely just a typo than the actual stretching of a tire to to the right a wheel one inch also big.the 7 and also 8 keys are actually pretty close

well i simply wanted come know much more about it, climate the guy said that he had 17 inch tires on an 18inch rim.so ns asked him around it, and he comment "yah, lock look great. Low profile"so morning im gonna tell the im not interested.i just know that 1. Ns don"t understand crap around this type of stuff and also 2. The kids these days perform all type of stuff, from placing on tires favor rubberbands, to extending the tires, to extreme an unfavorable camber and also such.for all ns know, it could be a legit technique.

...then the guy said the he had actually 17 customs tires on one 18inch rim. So ns asked him about it, and he comment "yah, they look great. Low profile"
If I had actually to guess: v I"d say that he thinks "low profile" method a smaller tire diameter rather of a smaller element ratio. It"s almost particular that those tires are created 18"s, however he"s saying they"re for 17"s due to the fact that that"s what he think "low profile" means.

if a seller also remotely appears to it is in vague around the summary of your item/items perform not pursue that route...not just do they not understand what they are talking about, it provides their initial product description null & void!also, the general agreement gathered from my Google search outcomes is:tires deserve to "stretch" sideways yet not outwards...aka a 17" tire will certainly NOT work-related on one 18" wheel...feel cost-free for future endeavors to send me a attach to potential Craigslist ads in question and also I"d it is in happy to break it down for you and even decipher some of the gibberish this sellers seem to ooze from their mouth feet :3_bier:
Hmmm. My negative didnt notification the date of critical post. Once I go through posts yesterday i was under active topics therefore dont recognize why this one popped up. Figured if it was in active and it was current.
