1.5 inches isn't low enough to cause a problem, usually. that is 29" you are dealing with though. I can fit a 27 in mine barely, but im down 3 or 4 inches. the section width is 10 inches, which should fit in the back, but you may rub in the front when you turn

traction. all of the 40, 45, even 50 tall tires dont hold. i need some more sidewall. plus its a better ride.:cool:

my cheap 225/60/16 hold better than the 235/50/18 bfg's i have now.

The 255-55-18 is approx. 10lbs heavier than a 275-40-18...My guess is that you are not gonna have traction problems because of the massive power loss from such a Heavy & TALL tire.

What kind of power are you making with your SC anyways??

not much 300-325 ish 3:73 in the rear. i drive it everyday and when i go to the track i like to just use my street tires to get a feel on how fast the car is on the street. i can put a 285 or a 315 if it would fit but with a 40 side wall and all its going to do at the track is spin.

Do you happen to have a picture of a bird with a 275/40/18. I'm debating on whether or not to go with a staggered set up for my next set of tires. Thanks!

I have 275-40-18's in the rear on a 18x10.5 wheel and there is no rubbing. The wheel doesn't come out of the fender either looks nice and tucked.
