I don't mind it, is it bad for any reason other than having to correct the steering on certain roads? Like would it effect performance/turning in a negative way? I am worried about rubbing and clearing the strut in the front. I made a thread, I'll just see what people say.

My car always tram lined not sure why just did kinda a pita. My old rims were 18x8.5 ET 35 so it might be close. Interested to see if it works! You might have some poke with that ET.

VMR says you can run 18x9.5 et45 with 255s in the rear with rubbing in the rear without rolled fenders but would be fine if you ran 245's

for way less you could get a manual transmission and new vmr rims? Prolly what i would do over getting 255 square set up and 1800 dollar rims with tires thats gonna be almost a 3k rim/tire set up not to mention a sweet clutch/flywheel set up. i like the rims ya got but everyone mods differently

**** it I think i'm just gonna get the same rims again through vmr.. I dont have enough money for this sh1t... 235's squared perform nice enough for me on all seasons... I think some good tires will make a world of difference... I'll just get them volks when I get an ///M

I think it would be a better idea to get my brakes and some sways instead...

255's squared is rediculous imo man... dinan track cars are running 245s squared.... brakes are a great upgrade. (my last) I still say do the M/T swap I have a good vendor in st louis. I can most likely get you a tranny for 450
