Odd tire setup on a used set of Mandrus
Ok, so I bought a set of used Mandrus Wilhelm rims with tires. I needed a set for my all seasons and was going to move the stocks to winters. Anyway, I haven't put them on yet but I was checking them out now. They're a staggered set - 9.5" in the rear and 8.5" in the front.
On the Mandrus site, the wheel size it states for ALL THEIR Wilhelms are 275s. So from 8" to 10" rims, one tire size. First question is..is that right? Or a mis-print on their site? Seems like this is the case for a lot of their rims.
On the set of Mandrus I purchased, the wheels are different sizes, which I would assume is normal BUT the rears on the 9.5 rims are 265s. The fronts on the 8.5 rims are 275s. Did they mount this thing wrong? Is it safe for me to put this on my car and drive around?
