just needs to be under 90db. depending on what the exact cite was for, you might have to go through emissions. but i doubt that. jsut make sure your exhaust is under 90db and you'll be fine.

Hey Chad, what your wheel tire specs again?


I've been lookin around seeing if my plans to run 245/35/19 squared on my 9.5's will work out. Its all working out on my 225's, but I want more tire... less camber, less spacer. (all +41)



All I'm really worried about is my front inner strut clearance.... which is already almost a problem..

i think e35 is the highest you can go for 9.5s in front with general suspension(clears my gc and w/e G$ was running). i don't remember if you are on racelands or not but i remembered those needed a lower et to even clear my 8.5s with w/e et it was on my vb3s.

Fronts.... 19x8.5 235/35/19 ET 34
Rears..... 19x9.5 265/30/19 ET 33

It will depend on the tire as well. I was running Nitto's all around and they are way beefier and the sidewall is more square, caused more rubbing. I switched the rear out and am running Achillies.... they are the same size 265/30, however they are smaller than Nittos. They look like they have a little stretch to them, have a rounder sidewall and don't rub nearly as often.

It sounds like that is too high of an offset to run a 245, you will most likely hit the inner well. I have a coupe, but maybe someone can confirm.

EDIT: Chad posted at the same time.

I'm on racelands with 9.5 et27 square, running 225 front 245 rear. Going to switch to 245 all 4 when I find a good deal on tires. Front looks real close to rubbing inside and I want to lower some more. I was thinking of removing the helper spring in hopes that raises the locking "collar".
