lol jk... quick question guys, my Ray's G-Games 77w's are 18x8 48+ offset i believe. I have a set of eibach sportlines im waiting to install and some skunk2 camber arms. What would be the best tire size in order to make this fit and still perform well? also what, if any, spacers are needed?


thanks for the help in advance guys,
Josh

good thing you were kidding cause i was about to make fun of you.

i would probably go with a 225/40. you should be good with the offset because i think the stock wheels are +48 and the new wheels will only protrude in another 1/2 inch more than the stocks.

No problem. I have 225/40/17s that were dropped very low on my SS coilovers . If I remember correctly, they sat lower than Sportlines. I rubbed only over big bumps and mostly on the highway. I've raised the front end up 1cm and I barely have any rubbing at all now. Any pictures that I may have taken since Mid October show the drop.

I'd have to see a pic of a car dropped on sportlines to see the clearance. Our wheels have the same exact clearance. If you drop too low, the tire will rub the inner wheel well skirt. Rolling it may help.

That would have been so classic... banned for being rice.
Trust me, the thought has crossed my mind before.
