    275/40ZR17 Sumitomo HTR Z II 2 $192.00
    275/35ZR18 Sumitomo HTR Z II 2 $314.00


    would 285 work on the back?


    I GOT C6 RIMS: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...1795&rd=1&rd=1
    WILL I NEED SPACERS FOR THOSE RIM OFFSETS??????

    I NEED SOME INPUT, why not have 285 on the rears, they are actually $5 cheaper than 275.......whats the difference? just footprint width right?

    and does anyone have any idea if i need spacers for the c6's

    the bigger the number is near 275 or higher the better it looks unless its just way too big for the rim... also protects ur rims from curb damage when ur too drunk to park with rubber lip hanging over... i got 275 on stock 9" rims

    I am considering getting the same wheels and similar tires so let me know how they turn out. With those offsets my understanding is we will not need spacers.

    im repainting it because the paint was pretty rough, it was bubbling a little on the center crossover piece, 6" chip on the bottom of the front bumper, and some idiot slid into the back bumper in traffic, it dented in and popped right back out (because of our wonderful very flexible bumpers) but the paint chipped like HELL in a 12" area.......i knew when i bought it i was gonna havta paint it eventually, and the rear ending settled that. Plus, i wanted a ss hood, it gets painted w/rest of car instead of later down the road and not matching the paint......


    It was black, went to NBM. he sprayed it today.

    I like black, hard to keep clean tho. NBM wont be much better im afraid....

    i like the nbm but from what i have seen scratches show up veryyyy easy, like circular ones so make sure you clean it properly everytime
