    Nah get 15"x10" rear rim & 27.8" x 11" hoosier dot street slick and for the front 15x 5" there good for everyday use that's wat I drive plus it makes ur ride look like that older muscle car look but if you don't like that I also had 17"s all around with 17x11 in the rear with M/T tires 315x35x17 trust me you'll hook up with these but before u race them you gotta lit them up good and flatten them down to 10lbs. Youl have a 14" tire tread hah it's a decent tire

    I just got the 275/35/18 raptors all the way around and love them, they are very quiet and they handle good in the rain and in dry conditions.

    I had firestone firehawk wideovals on my 94 m6 in a 275 40 17 and they look good but break loose easy. Now I have a set of low dollar fuzion ZRI's in that size on my 02 and have actually been happy with those until I changed gears and can't hook with them but they are a good street tire for the money.

    I had kumho's and the rears wore fast and handled ok at best. I have BFG KDW NT's and it's the best tires I have had on my TA yet the Goodyear tires dry rotted though the Futura ultra Z's from pep boys I had years ago were good for cheap tires. After these BFG's wearout I plan on a new set good handling and haven't worn much after all the abuse .

    @ nicholasp no they won't work 315's only work with 10.5 and bigger your stock rims are only 9.5. Look up jegs.com go to the tire section and look up Mickey thompson or Hoosier their pretty descent tires click the deferent tires and they will give you every size/ever spec about them thats a pretty good site just to use as ref. But idk were you can go for the cheapest wheel set tho.

    A Nitto 555R drag radial will fit in that size on the stock 17" rear wheel but the 555R's run narrow.
