Hello everyone! Just want to know if you can fit 145 width tires on a 5.5j 10 inch rim. Pictures will be much appreciated! Thanks in advance!

I think you’d struggle to get them to seat without a bead cheater. They’d be very stretched.
I run 145 on 5x10” an the rear of my autotest car and struggle to fit them.

I reckon you'd be able to stretch them on.

Do the flame trick to get them seated. Scary but works a treat.

Could you fit them?        -Anything is possible with enough force & ignorance.

Would they be safe?      -NO !

 

145 tyres aren't even recommended for 5" wide wheels

It's your Mini -if you are prepared to risk crashing the car rather than buying wider tyres it's entirely up to you.
