Opposite of normal, are these too small?

    Was interested in maybe a winter set and found these for cheap but unclear if theyd fit.

    18" Elbrus 5lug (any 5 lug should fit not different odd geometry is there?) With Michelin X-Ice tires w/ tpms and supposedly nitrogen filled.

    Good deal? Would fit and actually see some ice improvement? First winter with the truck or any larger vehicle and I'm not worried about getting stuck in a drift or starting at a light as I am losing it at 40mph on the highway. I'm probably overworrying as I've never had a problem and usually leave lots of room etc, but again still my first big vehicle during a winter. (I'd go straight to studs but winter here is often dry with only like 2-3 good storms that leave ground down ice for a couple days.)

    Oops found the edit. Also to clarify I know these are shit discount tire special wheels, but all the more reason if they actually fit, would be for a winter set and at least they arn't too gaudy.

    I think thhere are 7 different 5 lug patterns... Judging by the low profile of that tire I would assume those are more for a car and probably wouldn't work on our truck, but that's just a guess. You would need the measurements. Aside from bolt pattern there is also an offset you need to make sure works. Also see if those tires are rated for a truck or just passenger cars.

    I think you would be better off going with used stock wheels from a Tundra.

    That's awfully thin for 18 inch wheel. My guess is it won't fit Tundra. Make sure it's 5x150.

    Tires are 245/45/18. Thought I'd seen some pretty low profile tires on tundras, but then again maybe was just the 22 inch crazy rim guys. I kinda figured though this would be the case with offset and being a car wheel or something. Just jumped on it quick as I was busy wishing to do something about ice traction over my oem shitty dueler HT's. Just not ready for an expensive set of tires and 1k set of blizzacks or something. So $350 for one or two winters of tire seemed good.

    26.6" diameter tires. Will look really small.

    Load Range: XL
    Max Load: 1764 lbs
    Max psi: 50 psi

    These tires are meant for a passenger car. I wouldn't recommend running them on a full size truck.

    For comparison my tires are load range D.
    Max Load: 3195 lbs
    Max psi: 50 psi
