18×10s

I'm looking at finding some 10" wide wheels for my car currently have 8's on all 4 corners do they make them for our lug pattern? I'm running 265's in rear 245's up front and zero traction. I have some 295's I want to put on the rear but will not fit on those wheels..I would like to do this without swapping bolt pattern.I no longer have a garage I can do this in which is putting a hault on a lot of other things I want and need done..so any insight on this would be great thanks

Brad (Cudaz101) at The Custom Wheel Shop has them in the Tbird bolt pattern.

I run 18 x 9's on my car with 245 front and 275 rear; with 285 drag radials and I got plenty-o-traction.

Which tires are you running? Do you have a trac-lok (posi) rear end?

Mods? Yea, I got mods ...

Nice numbers. What all have you done to the car/engine?

Is it forced induction or N/A?

them 4.10's may be the cause of it. BFG's are pretty good tires. Lower the tire pressure a little and see what happens.
