    Is it possible to upgrade the current 215/70 R16 of the Tribute to something like 255/55 R18? Im looking for wheels that would look best for the Tribute but will not hit the sides of the wheel well while driving..What design would look best on the Tribute? Many thanks..

    wow..i like the paint job on the tribute with 18s..it just doesnt say what size tires he put on..sayang. i think 18s are the way to go but im thinking whether to go 255 or smaller.

    thanks for the help!

    btw, ok ba yung concept one wheels?

    Maganda nga yung wheels sa conceptone..chrome looks good, lalo na kung black yung car

    What does the size mean when you click the details? 18" x 9.5" means rim 18" but what does the 9.5" mean? Yun ba yung maximum width of the tire you can install? :confused:

    Still confused whether 255 will fit the tribute..:confused:

    thank you sirs for all the input ;)

    18x9.5 spec wheel: 18 = rim diameter and 9.5 = rim width.

    thanks for the reply..

    how will i know the widest tire size that a wheel can accomodate? since the 255 is approx. 10" can it fit a wheel that is 9.5" wide?

    Definitely, I would imagine it looking squared with little to no-sidewall buldge.
