thinking of 225.35 front and 255.35 rear

dont want to have a mad stretch, but enough to tuck the tyre in the arch

if that rear offset is ET45, youre gonna need spacers. see the link about 10 on a sedan in my sig. but yes, 255s will be perfect.

i just switched to a 7mm spacer and its sexy time.
dont cut your springs, buy proper lowering springs. do it right, or dont do it at all.

Excellent thread. Been looking at buying these wheels recently, but i was worried about the 10inch rears. Good to see some of you have already been there.

Get pics up a.s.a.p when you get the tyres. Really wana see how it looks! Looking good so far.
