    Bigger Wheels with Sportlines?

    I am about to buy my friends ZR1s that are 17x9.5 up front and 17x11 out back. the tires up front are 285/40ZR17 (i think) and the backs are 315/35ZR17. Will I have to put the car back to stock ride height until i can buy the Eibach Pro-Kit or will i be squared away? im thinking the outside of the tire is going to rub the edge of the fender with the springs that i have on there now. thanks

    the fronts are def going to rub. my stock 275 40 17 rubbed causing me to go to a 265/40/17. 17 inch wheels suck to find a good lower profile tire to fit, but a 35 would not rub, but try to find a tire that size.
