Which 315's? And what rim size are you running now?

I was thinking about stepping up from 18"x9" to 18"x10" on my rims but couldn't find a 315 that would fit. I think I need a 315/35/18? Is that correct?

It looks like TOYO is the only MFG in that size?

Mods? Yea, I got mods ...

Will 315 fit? I know my 275 on a 18x10 is tight.

315 would clear easy on my car if I had the wheels widened more

I'm running 18x10.5's on the back right now with a 285x40x18. I will have a ways before it will rub. I am running mustang bolt patten though. Here is a pic of when I use to have 275x40x18's on the 10.5 inch wheel. Yea wasn't pretty lol. But you can see If I move the brake line I should have room.
