I would have to agree. Thanks for posting your thread, I just picked up the apex arc 8's 18x9.5 all around. Gona start with 245/35's and see how that goes. If it works out maybe the next set of tires I'll try the 255's like you

Ya that sedan is working nice! Simple and not over the top but just enough at the same time.

I'm still super jealous of your brake ducts.... my wallet is hurting so hard though... so many mods I want... so little cash.

I've been waiting to get a set of 17 arcs for track since tires are expensive. Maybe a set of 9s. Where did you get your fenders cuts?

LOVE your car! Looks amazing! Glad I'm not the only one running beefy tires here! I've got 19x9.5's in the rear with a 265 tire. I'm lowered to just about your height and my fenders are rolled. It's funny, I'm looking to get spacers to sit flush and was wondering if I would clear the fender if I use the spacers. Do you have any rubbing issues? I'm running -2.6 degrees of negative camber in the rear so I'm wondering if a 10mm spacer will give me issues?

17's look awesome! I saw the thread for those the rotational mass on those probably make them feel even lighter than my 18's.

I had someone local cut them but I honestly could have just did it myself. I was just lazy... honestly I still need to get under there and cut some more I'm still rubbing. If you have an angle grinder or a good dremel and a roller you are good to go. Also buy some liquid rubber sealant to seal it back up.

I really do need to get back under there... maybe in a couple weeks.
