Largest front tire to fit Wide Body

Wide Body owners,

What is the widest front tire that will fit w/out issue. Stock height, factory wheels.

I see guys posting 315s and bigger on the rear, but wonder how wide one can go square. (to allow tire rotation/extend tire life)

I would be more concerned with the loss of handling and steering response that would result from running a tire that is too wide, or at the upper end, for the wheel.
Every tire size has an approved rim width, and the closer to the minimum rim width you get, the more the on road performance is compromised.

Don't know about in front, but I have Toyo R888R 325/30x20 in the rear on the OE 11" wheels.
No issues.
On another forum one poster is running them up front, no issues reported.

I saw where Paul @PK Auto Design said for the front, 335 looks like the largest. I know there are some Demons running 18" that get pretty wide

Is that 325 front on a stock "spec" (back spacing/ offset) 11 inch wide wheel?

Recently read on another (shall remain un-named) Challenger site, that widebodys can go 315 front and rear on stock wheels.
