Minimum vs. Recommended. If you want to put a 225 tire, you certainly don't need an 8.5" wheel, so he could have saved a couple of bucks.

In my head, Tire Rack should have said something like this:
Minimum: 225
Recommended: 235 or 245
Maximum: 255

But anyway, I'm just sharing my thoughts.

They never replied back to me after I sent the pics LOL.

Tried following up twice and got ghosted.

Got to love it.

That sucks man! But anyway, try to be positive. Now you have more information . So next time tires are gone, you can try a different setup.

One final comment, keep in mind that wider tires and bigger wheels will negatively impact the acceleration. That was one of the downsides with mine, even considering I have an ECU tune (270hp+). Don't get me wrong, the good things overpass the bad things. But it's something to consider.
