just curious, and not trying to hijack your thread, why did you change your mind ? except for the wider rear, those are the same wheels I run on my car

This was the case of measure twice cut once....I measured once and then proceeded with cutting..

I purchase tires first (255 Fronts, 285 Rears) and then purchased the wheels. At this point I am moving forward with the original saw blades.

Those tires should fit (depending on brand) on those wheels. I've done it before with a 275 tire on a 10.5 inch wheel as an example..., in fact OE wheel sells wheels and tire sets like that. The wheel will be a tad wider than the tire but it does work. My plan was to just run those tires on the wheels until I burned through the tread then get wider tires. You will need a decent shop to mount them though. Mine were done at a shop that had a hunter 2000 balancing machine. And for whatever reason the tire brand really does matter because they all measure differently.

The tires I bought were Nitto NT555 G2 Performance Radial Tires
