me too! 245 rears??

marc, what do you have on yours? 225s?
yeah..the rims are 18 7.5 and have Toyo T1-S 225/40/18's all the way around..

not sure whats the largest that can go on this size rim...

curious to hear back from you Don!!!

I was planning on sticking with these rims when I decide to go forward with my turbo plans, and get the larger 18 9.5 rims for the rear with big rubber on them....

I think I'm running a couple of HP over stock... :wink: Yep, the 225's may be a little small for the rear, but we shall see. I may have to buy a couple of 18x9 SS7's to keep things planted.

Congrats man looks good. I think you should look for a Ltuned kit now. that would be a first with a gold and Ltuned. What you think man lol?

Justin
There is always that possibility, if the kit from Carson is as good as I think it will be.. :)
