    GOING TO RUN 245s AND 275s

    What do you think about running a staggered setup? I plan on putting Nitto 275-40 DRs in the rear (stickys) and Nitto 555 245-45 in the front. The overall diamter of these two tires is identical, should be fine, what do you think?

    Great, are you running 17s, stock rims? and does that mean that you are running the 275s on the stock rims?

    So 235s up front what size exactly 235-45 17 ? I see you have a lot of power to tame, what brand tire do you like to use?

    Thanks much

    Yes 235-45-17 front 275-40-17 back, I went to the 235 because I'm dropped 1 inch in front and the 245 was hitting the front of the wheelwell. The wheels are stock 17s but the rear is widened to 9 inches.





    On the track I use 17 inch SSR wheels 8 inch in front 8.5 in the rear. Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 235-45-17 front ... either MT or Hoosier DRs in back 275-40-17

    Awesome, nice ride, thanks for the pictures. So of course now I have another question, are your stock rims chromed or black chrome? Looks fantastic, did you send them out to be chromed and can I ask how much it would cost to chrome 4 rims?
    Thanks again

    They are black chromed. Original chrome by the dealership started flaking off after 2 years. ... and I don't drive it in the winter. So I shipped them out to fast forward wheels in Cali. They cost $200/wheel to rechrome and another $100/wheel for the black.
