Ill take some nice shots when I pick up my tires after class It looks great, I didn't realize I pulled it out a lot until I went to the other side and saw it was almost half a inch wider. (give or take) I can pull it some more and blend it in, it's pretty cool. I guess I was paranoid because I've been seeing a lot of butchered fenders.

This is a list of tires categorized in how true they are to the size.
(I dunno how accurate it is, but the ones that are listed that I have experience with have been correct except T1R, I thought they were pretty true to size)

SMALL:
Falken ST115
Falken ZE-512
Fuzion ZRi
Nankang NS-II

TRUE:
Nitto 555 Extreme
Michelin Pilot Sport
Dunlop SP Sport
Hankook 104
Toyo T1S
Toyo Proxy 4
Yokohama S.Drive
Avon Tech M500
Nitto Neo-Gen
Ultrac Giugiaro
Nexen N3000

LARGE:
Continental Contisport
BF Goodrich g-Force KDW
General UHP
Bridgestone S03
Kumho SPT
Federal ss595
Pirelli P-Zero Line
Goodyear F1 Line
Falken FK452
Cooper Zeon 2XS
Kumho Ecsta Supra 712
Ultrac Sessanta
Proxes T1R
Wanli S-1099
Nitto Invo
Wanli S-1088

NS-II has a nice stretch, my fiance has 225/35 all around on 18x9", S.Drives on the front & NSII on the back, the NSII provides more sidewall clearance. From what I noticed on different setups was that the Falken 512s run a lot smaller, 215/40 looks like a 205/40 for example...

im trying the nankangs ns2's, they stretch nice on my previous setups. i have had bad luck with nitto's all 4 bubbled on me last time & i don't recall hitting any crazy bumps. they are great freaking tires though, i have some on my civic to daily.

Might not be the typical aggressive look with stretch and poke, but here's an aggressive track setup:

True that. Nittos are more ****ing expensive now than ever, but best investment. I got a set of cheap Archilles and they replicate the nittos perfectly in sidewall and elbow design. Very cheap and daily driven for 3 months with no prob. Not meant to hi-jack your post bro!
