Thanks, but I really want to see if I could get some 19' on mine, I 17 now too.

Yes it can be done. I'm running 225/35/19 front, and 245/35/19 on the rear.

BringsMeWomen 01-09-2013 11:46 PM

Yes it does im planning on lowering it this summer... Do you recommend any good products to buy i havent really made my decision yet lol

spared1 01-09-2013 11:51 PM

Bring me women, this is exactly what I needed to see and hear....thanks I'm getting them...what rim should I get?

spared1 01-09-2013 11:55 PM

Does the 19 still handle well or do you lose that?

BringsMeWomen 01-10-2013 12:02 AM

I think it handles still pretty good for me because i have good tires. I use Hankook Ventus v12 Evo tires. As for rim choice there is a lot to choose from such as VMR, DPE, BBS, Vossen and many other companies. My sizing is 19x8.5 in the front and 19x9.5 in the back. My wheels are called Beyern Rapp you can get them at modbargains.com im pretty sure. Those would be the sizing you could get. As for offsets i dont know because these wheels came from the previous owner so you would need to figure out what offsets you would need to get so you dont get any rubbing while driving

Brings me women, what are offsets and is Dunlop a good tire?

Try that link and it should kinda explain what offset is. As for dunlop tires i think there is a few good ones out there on this same website im pretty sure. Dunlop makes some good tires if you get the right ones

19x8.5 ET40 front and 19x9.5 ET45 rear with 235/35/19 and 265/30/19 tires. You shouldn't have any issues.

As far as tires, I would suggest doing a bit of research on Tirerack's website and reading some reviews. Popular choices are Hankook Ventus V12s, Continental ExtremeContact DW, or Michelin Pilot Super Sports. Plenty of other options out there though. :)

BringsMeWomen 01-10-2013 03:14 PM

Yea thats exactly what i have for sizing. Nice car btw and like he said those are some popular tires but there is so much to choose from

wilcax 01-11-2013 04:48 AM

If you want to be as low as me you need to run a 245mm wide tire in the rear, otherwise you will rub. To run a 265mm tire you need to roll your fenders to not rub. I am currently sitting on h&r race springs, which have settled over a few years and now sit a tad lower than my sig pic.

BringsMeWomen 01-11-2013 01:48 PM

If your on stock suspension though like i am you can run a 265mm tire. I dont rub at all
