    blacker than wesleysnipes
    98' trans am

    to go along with what everyone said..i was deadset on going 18s out back..however i finally decided the tires where way to expensive and "settled" on some TT Ms 17x10.5 so i can run the common 315/35/17 ..i think they are 35..but anyways you cant go wrong with 17 or 18s..it comes down tires really ..

    rims that i am getting.

    I must have lost ya somewhere there. I never mentioned an under $100.00 tire. To me 100.00 is cheap per tire. I spent about $600.00 on my ZR 265/45 16. Meaning you can get expensive tires in just about any size and reasonably priced ones in most sizes as well. Many companies make econo tires in various sizes.... Performance tires? ehh, prolly not so cheap for some..

    Here's the set of Zr 16's I got for about 6 bills.

    maybe i'm missing something and will start my research after this post, but those look like they have a joke of a tread depth, unless they are drag rads?

    And they're 245/45r16's? I may be wrong but 600? i run 275/40r17's all around (and OP dylan, don't go narrower than 275 unless you drive in the snow as well...) and can get out of the tire store for around 700... although i'll let u know what i end up with this spring, i'm thinking nt05's this time around.

    No they are Zr 265/45 16's..

    Yes they are Kumho Vitoracers not DR's. Yes nearly 600 bucks for the set of 4. Oh and yes they are 16's I have painted snow flakes the factory 16's are'nt as wide as the 17's.. To the tread depth, yes they have a shallow tread they are Zr rated tires for summer time use only. She don't move (not driven) in the rain or snow..

    Yeah if you look at my post in Wheels and Tires you'll see I'm looking at

    275/35ZR18's

    I don't drive in the snow, as it doesn't snow too much here, once or twice a year. When it does though, I just drive the truck, no I think I'll go with 275's
