Will it fit?

I have a set of 40" x 13.5" x 18" Dick Cepek FCII"s in my garage waiting to come on.

The wheel's I'll be using are 18" x 9". This may be a dumb question but with the wheels being only 9" wide and the tires being 13.5" wide....will this work?

Just getting things ready.

Thanks all!

Since your side wall is so big its not really that big of a difference. go mount one, you could probably do it yourself with those sidewalls. and See for your self!

id say about %90 of cars/trucks on the road have wider tires then rims.

im loving the sig.

Work..IMO 18" are too small for 40" as the sidewall will flex alot..22" would be much better. Hope your BS is no less than 4.5" or its gona rub. Your going to run a 12" lift?

They will look fine, just have a little sidewall "pudge" and with that tall of a sidewall (11'') i would say its gonna be a fight to keep it straight in the road. Especially on curves, but maybe not. Just my thoughts.
