    Default Please post some pictures.

    I have a set of wheels, 17x8 and 18x10. I was wondering if anyone has close up pictures of these tire sizes on these size wheels:

    -205/40/17
    -215/40/17

    -265/35/18
    -275/35/18

    Thank you very much in advance.

    I've got some 275/35/18 on the race wheels. Not a close up, but high enough res to see them close up

    They're Enkei RPF1. Yes, I wanted to know how streched they'll look if I decided to go with the smaller sizes.

    The 275 rear wont look stretched on the 10" wheel. I have 275's on my 19's for street and it looks very stretched, but was all I could fit without rubbing.

    275 rear wont look stretched on the 10" vs 275's on my 19's looks very stretched

    I run a 275 on my 18x10" wheels, and my 19x11" wheels.

    They look good on the 10" wide, but stretched on the 11" wide. I guess the wording wasn't too good. That's what I get for being at a computer all day.

    Tirerack recommend 265s. I wanted to run 215s and 275s r-comp but I'm having a hard time finding the 215s. I found some 205s but afraid to use them.

    NSX Type R sizes are 215/265

    I never see NSX runs more than 50mm difference front & rear in videos from Best Motoring

    I (almost) have what you're looking for.

    These were the wheels & tires on my NSX:

    Front: 17 x 8 (42mm offset)
    Rear: 18 x 9.5 (38mm offset)

    Front: 215/40 - 17
    Rear: 275/35 -18
