    I would like to run a taller sidewall tire on the rear of cobra but not a drag radial. I love the look and size of the Toyo 315/35/18. Does anybody have pics of a 285/40 or 295/40? Those sizes are available in a street tire.

    I had 295/35/18 Nitto Invo on my car when I first got it. Now I have 305 35 18 R888. Its not the 40 wall your looking for but it might help. Nitto Nt555 G2 come in a 295/40/18.

    Yeah the 295/40 g2 is what I’m looking at.

    Hi,
    Why not run the Toyos? I'm asking because I just bought a car with Toyo Proxies R888's at 315/30/18's in the rear and they fit.

    315/30 doesn’t have enough sidewall for me. I love the look of the 315/35 toyo tq but again it’s a drag radial. I don’t want to run one on the street all the time. I’ve heard to many stories. And although I’m a safe driver I don’t want to take that chance.
