Wider tire than stock on 21" rims

Recommended Posts

Anyone tried 295/35 21??

Wondering if they're too wide.  Doesn't seem to be an enormous amount of space on rears.. haven't even looked at front yet.

As I remember, someone here at the forum did put 295/35 R21 tires on his OEM rims and reported that they fit. There was nothing said about long term use . Although the  295/35 R21tires do fit they are not recommended for use by the manufacture on 9 inch wide rims,  like the OEM 21 inch ones on Sports.The 295/35 R21 tire will be 1/2 inch wider on the inside and outside for a total of one inch wider overall, same sidewall and overall hight and diameter as the 265/40 R21 OEM tire.

Thanks for the reply.  I saw the post you're referring to after a deeper dig on the forum.  I like the way they look and am ordering some.  I'll post after a few thousand miles and let everyone know how they're holding up.  

 

Just traded my Focus ST in on the Edge ST and so far I like it.  Not quite as fun to drive but a hell of a lot easier to enter and exit (I'm 67).

 

Ordered lowering springs, having cat back dual  custom exhaust (Flowmaster 50) done next week and will post photos when all is complete.

 

Thanks again for the response and Happy Thanksgiving to all.

I am interested in the results after it is lowered with the 295s all around.  What is the diameter of your exhaust  system?

Gonna try to go 3", but may have to settle for 2.5. Having it done Tuesday, hopefully. Will post back then.
