Will 145's fit on a 5.5\" rim?

Here's the deal.......I have 5.5\" rims, and I have 145 tires. If I can make them fit I will use them, but I'm not buying tires cause I may not like the look of the wheels on the car.

People put 135's on 5.5 empi 5 spokes all the time. Like James said watch out for curbs.

they'll fit, don't worry, probably won't fall off unless you're doing a lot of very heavy cornering
even then it's not common

just try and stay away from poor quality tires
