rim/tire question

hi all

I am thinking about getting a set of deep dish chrome bullits for my 94 thunderbird once I finish swaping the hubs etc, I was wondering what the widest tire and rim combo would be to fit the front and back, I was hoping to go with 18" rims

thanks for all your help

After the hub swap:

Front: I would run a 245-45-18 up front. 255-45-18 if you must have larger, but might cause some problems. Rims will fit perfect, no spacers needed.

Rear: I would run a 285-40-18 out rear. You will have to roll your fender lips, proby need air bags too. The wheel will also need a spacer most likely, as you will have some interference issues out back. When you step it up to a 10" rear, it becomes a guess and check type of deal.
