    Lowered 2" - What Size?

    On a car that is using an eibach 2" Lowering kit
    Would 18s work in the rear?
    If not then would 17s fit and on what size tire?
    Not really worried about the fronts, rears mainly

    will fit the same way the 17s to... as long as you keep the same overall diameter.
    info on overall diameter: Overall Diameter Table
    almost stock triple-black 2000 SS convertible with 17x11s on all 4 w/ 315s at the track or on the street with 18x10.5s on all 4 w/ 315s: (1), (2)

    anything wider than 275's on 17's will require "rollin the lip" on a car lowered 2". 18's IMHO are a complete waste of money 'cuz of cost. just like eugino said, you can get same diameter tires on 18's as you can on 17's, but the performance gain (for bangin turns) is not worth the incredible increase in price.
    2000 red ss: >2" drop, koni adjustables 'n 275 s-compounds all way around, giant brakes, dynatech LT's, borla catback (no plate), t56, tubular everything, HARD TOP, caged, "stock" heads 'n a mean cam. -2* front camber.
