      The wheel is 9.5" and i have brand new 225/40 tires, will that work and is that a safe stretch?

      I have a 225/40/18 on my DD with 8.5 inch wheels and its really no stretch at all. 225 on a 9.5inch wheel depending on tire brand shouldn't be anything too crazy. GL

      that tire size will work fine, will a nice amount of stretch. a lot of mk5 guys run 215/40 on a 9.5 and thats about as small a tire I'd do
