I have a 08 V8 pathfinder and was wounding if anyone could help me out with some pics of a R51 with 265/65/18 and 275/65/18. I upgraded from the stock 265/60/18 to 275/60/18 on my pathfinder and want to something a little more Aggressive , but don’t want to go to the 285/65/18. I will say I don’t know why but mine is a V8 and it sets pretty high stock. Any help from any of you would be really appreciated.

The visual difference between these two options is almost unnoticeable. Your talking about 10mm in width. Neither of these options will make the appearance more aggressive unless you're going with an off-road tread pattern. The height of the sidewall is the same so the vehicle height remains the same. Here's more info on sizing if you're interested m.tirerack.com/tires/tiretech/techpage.jsp?techid=46

The sidewall height is calculated as the aspect ratio- this is the second number in the tire numbers - multiplied by the tire width.

This means the sidewall height of a 275 60 18 vs 265 60 18 will be and additional height of 6mm (275-265) = 10 x .60 = 6 mm.

This is the sidewall height increase which then gets multiplied by 2 since we are dealing with a circle which has two sidewalls - when you look at your tire there will be total of two sidewalls below the wheel hub and above wheel hub.

So the 275 60 18 is 10 mm wider but also 12mm taller

I stand corrected. I should have kept reading my own link. Very Happy

Like AZ_Path said, it won’t be too much difference.

Here is another tire visualizer.

Here are some pics of new Pirelli Scorpion ATR Plus for my 2008.

Keep in mind I have a V8, so stock tire is 265/60/R18.

265/65/R18 is 1.1 inches taller than stock.

Pop your before and after dimensions in here.
