Default 68-69 GM-A rear tires. 295/40-18 vs. 295/45-18

Just got my AR VN510 wheels. 18x8 with 4.5 BS and 18x10 with 5.97 BS. Im most likely going with 245/45-18 up front. Trying to decide which rears to go with. Would 295/45s be too tall looking?

Good looking wheel, is that a custom B/S you ordered, I'm assuming yes ?

No not custom. They have several fitment specs. Scroll down on this page.

Just got em back from the tire shop. These 295/40s look a lot thicker than I thought. Nice! I can see how a 45 series would definitely be way too tall.

Cross section is nearly identical, but the tread width is obviously not. I had the Nittos on my GTO when I first built in in 2002. Then swapped to the Falkens in 2009.
