Tire size question
Buying 24 X 9.5 inch wheels. what size tires do i get? i dont want them to be too low of a profile. the guy who i bought the wheels from recommended a 315/35/24. i kinda think it might be too big. i dont want to look like i have off road tires either. im doing this transaction over the phone (amazing deal, by the way) so i have nothing to look at. my truck is lowered 2/3, if that helps. i would love to see a pic of this size wheel and tire if one was out there.

for those wondering what i got,.... 24" KMC "Slide"

I'd recommend 285/45/22, they are low profile but they fit quite nicely. Checked out Tirerack and they say the same size. If you've got a 2/3 drop then I'd recommend the low pros or you'll run into rubbing issues on the inner fender unless you've had them rolled in.

google tire size calculator, there are several good ones. Put in your current tire size, and then chose 24" and it'll spit out a close match. If you dont want a lower profile tire, why 24"....Was your OEM size 275/60-20? If so a plus 4 would be a 285/40-24
