Default Tire size calculator!

Ok, so I need to find a size calculator for how tall and how wide the tire is.

I'm trying to figure out the size difference from a 285/35/17 to a 295/40/17.

I know there is a minimal difference but, when your lowered and running camber and racing I don't want it fu(king up in the middle of the race.

So if anyone has any USEFUL input please let me know.

If needed I will be running Kumho V710 tires.

You can turn the pictures on on the right so you can visually see the difference. Hope this helps

I know, i have it worked out...There is a guy with an 01 Cobra that has 10.5 rims up front that runs 295/40/17's and he had to put spacers before the rim and then other spacers in something else (rack and pinion i believe) so it will only let him turn the steering wheel 1 complete rotation (which is stupid i think)...But i'm going another route with some different things, but had to make sure of clearance issues with the tire and if i have my **** right it will all work.

That is a very nice information you shared out here. I think it will help a lot to select the tire size. Previously i was always skeptical of online purchases.
