Talking Does 9.5mm Tires fit AMG Front Wheels?


Probably a simple question for most of you... does 9.5mm Kyosho brand tires fit on Mercedes AMG front wheels(I believe the front wheels are standard width)?.

I've bought some soft wide tires for my rear, but now I need some soft front tires to go with my setup. I believe default front tire size is 8.5mm. Thanks for your help!

In my opinion the standard 8.5mm wide rims should be using the 9.5mm tires, cuz all the stock tires I have seen dont realy cover the rim all the way.. so a 9.5 rubber on a 8.5 rim might just hang off a little.. wich would simulate some brands of tires.. (as if I know wich brands) but not all are flush with the rim...

9.5mm tires are almost perfect for 8.5mm wheels.

Putting 11mm tires on the 9.5mm wheels also works well. The overhang is minimal, and it looks real good to boot.

i totally agree with drac & fish (hmm...all of a sudden, i feel hungry...)

you can put in the semi wide tires on them standard tires... it fits a whole lot better than the standard tires...
