    Oh ok, cool thanks for the info.. gonna order the wheels/rims this week

    And with those tires, and lowered with strano springs, you think I'd have any problems with them fitting?

    I know you lowered yours too, right?

    The 275's come stock on the SS and WS6.
    No more touchy than stock.

    ProKit springs.
    Some cars need a little work to make them fit, some don't.

    our cars love same size tire width on all corners if you care about cornering.
    I have 315s on all corners on 17x11 for roadracing + autox, and had them on the street for several years.
    Now, for the street, i have 315s on all corers, but on 18s.
    Pix are in signature link.

    There is way more room in the front than in the rear for the wheels.
    Only regret is not doing it earlier.
    you can even put 17x12 w/ 335s on all corners if you want to, in case 315s aren't wide enough...

    Also, 315s on all corners allow for tire rotation as well.

    How do you find twitchiness on the street?

    I had www.weldcraftwheels.com custom widen two rims for the rear with 315's and if they fit nice on the front too I'm thinking about sending the fronts to get widened...

    test putting the widenned rear ones in the front... You'll notice you might need a bit more spacer, by 1/4".
    To be on the safe side, you can grind a little dimple on the spindle that looks like an apendix sticking out of the spindle... because the wheel gets fairly close to it.

    Thanks will do and will test before sending the two remaining wheels to get widened. I'm just wondering how you find driving on public roads does the car dart around and tire you out because of the big tires up front?

    I guess I could put the smaller rims on the back and 315's on the front and drive around town to test.

    it's actually 1 of the great things I did to the car... only regret is not doing it earlier... and been w/ wide wheels for the last 4-5 years.
