with these fit on a 90 thunderbird with rolled fenders non lowered? i want to lower it and i will put air bags in the rear just hoping these will fit i did a search and could not find anyone running this size tires on a 18" rim, a few 17's but no 18's also couldnt find anyone running a 10.5 rear wheel

That wheel is going to have too much backspacing at roughly 7-3/4". You would need spacers in the range of 3/4" thick or maybe a bit more, to keep from hitting on the inside. Something with less offset would be better.

Like Ed said...With respect to the wheels specs.

I have some customers running that size tire (285-40-18) on our 18X9.5 & 10 rears with no prob.
