There are many more. Too many to list.

They are also saying a range of 10.5-12.5 inches. But all say 11.0 inches is the preferred width.
An 11.5" is the minimum width for a 335mm tire.
As told to me by my supra buddies who run 17s that ideally 11.5 for 315. Which could mean 10.5 is bare minimum? I don't know for sure
